Cornell Cooperative Extension, the Regional Capital Area Agriculture & Horticulture Program and the Eastern New York Commercial Horticulture Program are pleased to present “Exploiting the Vulnerabilities of Weeds” on Tuesday, March 7, 2023. Farmers who grow field crops, vegetable crops, fruit crops, and horticultural crops will learn weed biology and how to exploit weed vulnerabilities to develop a cultural weed management plan and improve the effectiveness of herbicides. Pesticide applicator recertification credits will be available.

Weeds are a universal challenge for all farmers. Fortunately, much research has been done over the last several years to understand weeds and develop cultural techniques to manage them. Herbicides are also more effective when strategized based on weed biology. Several weed experts from Cornell University and the University of Illinois will present at this workshop, along with experienced farmers and Cornell Cooperative Extension educators. Farmers do not have to be frustrated with weeds anymore. The workshop will provide a foundation of weed management for all farmers.
