The Roundup -

Strategies for Slowing Weed Resistance Subject of BrownBagger

 


While use of “Roundup Ready” sugarbeets has provided producers with many benefits for weed management in that crop, the technology can also compound weed problems without proper management by building weed resistance to the popular herbicide. New strategies for slowing the spread of resistance are the focus of the next BrownBagger presentation at the USDA Agricultural Research Service’s Northern Plains Agricultural Research Lab in Sidney this coming Friday, March 11. Dr. Tom Peters, Extension sugar beet Agronomist at North Dakota State University in Fargo, is the speaker. His presentation runs from noon to one pm at the lab located at 1500 North Central Avenue in Sidney.

The event is open to the public. Dr. Peters will also be meeting with local researchers and others during his visit. Weed management and stopping the spread of resistance are key concerns for area producers as the presence of glyphosate resistant weeds in the county increases, most recently with the arrival of resistant marestail. Please join us for this very interesting and informative presentation which will further e expand on information Dr. Peters presented at Ag Days. As always, we will provide dessert!
