A series of weed management schools will take place in northwest and north central Kansas. These schools are hosted by local K-State Research & Extension county and district offices.
With the drought and hot temperatures this last summer, farmers and agri-business retailers had some challenges in controlling difficult weeds. To address the topic of weed control, K-State Research and Extension has scheduled four regional weed control programs in February. This program has been designed to help producers and agri-business retailers to improve weed control in challenging weather conditions.
The meeting locations and dates/times are :
February 15, Sharon Springs – 9:00 a.m. to noon (MTN time zone)
Community activity building
February 15, Atwood – 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

February 16, Kensington – 9:00 a.m. to noon

Presenters at the workshop include Sarah Lancaster, K-State extension weed specialist, and Cody Creech, dryland cropping extension specialist with the University of Nebraska, along with local KSRE Agents. Topics will cover applications and adjuvant considerations in drought conditions, tumble windmill grass management, herbicide-tolerant grain sorghum update, and a question and answer session. Bring all your questions with you! Three CCA credits have been applied for.
