Early-Season Weed Control on Field Crops Virtual Breakfast
Michigan Ag Connection - 04/05/2021

Starting with a good weed management plan prior to planting will help maximize yield for the 2021 growing season. This plan needs to include making sure you manage early season weeds. The free Field Crops Virtual Breakfast on April 8 will feature Christy Sprague as she highlights the benefits of early season weed control, some of the biggest limitations in controlling these weeds and examines some of the key strategies to managing early season weeds.

The Michigan State University Extension Field Crops Virtual Breakfast Series are held every week during the growing season via Zoom video or phone conference. These virtual meetings will take place every Thursday morning from 7-8 a.m. through Sept. 23. Restricted use pesticide (RUP) credits and Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) CEUs are available for attendees who attend the live meeting.

Participating is easy and free. You can join the live meeting via Zoom using a computer, tablet, mobile device or regular phone line. If you are new to Zoom, simply download the Zoom app and you will be ready to join online every week to see visuals shared by presenters. A call-in by phone option is also available but note that you will only hear the audio portion.

Participants must sign up to receive an email notification with instructions for joining the Virtual Breakfast. You only need to do this once and you will receive the Zoom link and call-in phone number, as well as weekly reminders every Wednesday. Participants receiving emails can opt in or out at any time.
