BATAVIA, N.Y. — No new herbicide modes of action have been released in over 30 years. But with herbicide resistant weeds spreading rapidly, and technological advances aiding product exploration, that may change soon. Several companies have announced exciting new products in the pipeline. And with innovations in weed control using steam, electricity, and steel, weed management may look very different in coming years – especially as robotics and “intelligent” guidance systems become more accessible to farmers. These forward-thinking sessions aim to show farmers the state-of-the-art in weed control technology.
Tuesday, January 14, 2021 / 1:15 PM – 5:00 PM
Session Organized by Lynn Sosnoskie, Dept. of Horticulture, Cornell Agri-Tech, and Bryan Brown, NYS IPM
