Take Action Weed Management Webinars and Weedy Podcasts
Given how messed up the whole herbicide supply and price thing is right now, it might be a good time to take advantage of free resources to improve your herbicide and weed management acumen. The USB Take Action program and university weed scientists are once again conducting a series of webinars to cover several key topics in weed management. Three webinars occur this month, and will be followed by the release of videos covering other pertinent weed-related subjects. January webinars include the following:
Why Care about Metabolic Herbicide Resistance – Thursday, January 13, 11 am EST
Value of Residuals in Herbicide-Resistant Weed Problems – Thursday, January 20, 11 am EST
Harvest Weed Seed Control Practices – Thursday, January 27, 11 am EST
Registration information can be found here. Videos of the webinars will be made available following their broadcast.
Another great resource is the “War Against Weeds” podcast. This podcast features guests with expertise in a variety of aspects of weed science, and discussions on integrated weed management, herbicide resistance, and other timely topics. The podcast is hosted by Sarah Lancaster, Kansas State Extension Weed Science Specialist, Mandy Bish, Extension Weed Scientist at the University of Missouri, and Joe Ikley, Extension Weed Scientist at North Dakota State.
