DR. LARRY STECKEL

JACKSON, TENN.
   The University of Tennessee Weed Tour will be held Wednesday, June 25 at the West Tennessee Research & Education Center in Jackson, TN (605 Airways Blvd). Registration will start at 8:30 A.M. and the tour will begin at 9:00 A.M.. Sorry for the confusion on the last post that stated it was Thursday, June 25.  The tour will culminate at 12:00 with lunch in room A in the main building.



   The tour will cover 60 weed management research tests in corn, soybean and cotton. Most of the research shown will be on management of glyphosate resistant horseweed and Palmer amaranth. Management of these weeds in Liberty and glyphosate based systems as well as some of the new herbicide technology traits on the horizon in cotton and soybeans will be highlighted. Moreover, cultural weed control practices and many of the newer premixes in corn and soybean will be demonstrated. As usual, a plot plan book will be available. UT personnel will lead the tour and be available for consultation as well as discussion of issues and product performance. ∆
