Weed research to be focus of Purdue weed science field day

The Purdue Weed Science Field Day plans to offer the latest in weed research information as well as info sessions and tours.

The Weed Science Field Day is scheduled for June 27. It will run from 8:30 a.m. to noon at Purdue’s Throckmorton Purdue Agricultural Center (TPAC).

At the free event, the West Lafayette, Indiana, institution’s researchers and graduate students plan to educate participants about the newest data in weed science research.

“Attendees will be able to view and hear presentations by current Purdue weed science graduate students on their cutting-edge research projects, which include weed control with cover crops, impact of cover crops on soil residual herbicide efficacy, drone sprayer applications, precision weed control tactics and weed control in early planted soybeans,” Bill Johnson, Purdue professor of weed science, said in a news release.

TPAC, located at 8343 U.S. 231, Lafayette, Indiana, spans 830 acres and comprises nearly one-third of all Purdue’s agriculture research. Weed Science Field Day attendees will review some of these ongoing research projects during the morning session.

Farmers, industry professionals, students and anyone with an interest in weed science is encouraged to attend.

Participants can preregister online or register at the event beginning at 8 a.m. ET.
