Each summer, the Extension Weed Science team evaluates herbicide programs for corn and soybeans. This year, those plots are available for viewing by interested individuals who are passing through the Manhattan area for football games or other reasons.
If you’d like to see the plots, just take your friends and a smartphone to the fields in the northwest corner of the intersection of W 40th Ave and S 33rd St, off of McDowell Creek Road (39.116867375199035, -96.63615418650708). You’ll see some signs that have a QR code to scan with your phone. That QR code will direct you to a website that hosts the treatment lists for the plots. If you want to preview the trial names and treatment lists you can do so here: https://sites.google.com/view/2023-herbicide-evaluation-plot?usp=sharing
Plots will be available through harvest (approximately at the end of September).
