Pigweed Field Day *CANCELED*

Due to the excessive rainfall (4″+) over the past 12 hours we have had to make a difficult decision and cancel the Pigweed Field Day scheduled for this Thursday, June 14, 2012.

Please accept our apologies if this has caused you any inconvenience.
Sincerely,
Tom Eubank & Jason Bond

 

Mississippi producers combat many weed species throughout the growing season, but no single weed can have as much of a negative impact on row crops as Palmer amaranth. Farmers, consultants and retailers can learn more about controlling Palmer amaranth, universally hated and commonly known as pigweed, at an upcoming field day.

Mississippi State University’s Delta Research and Extension Center will host a Pigweed Field Day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 14. The purpose of this year’s event is to demonstrate various programs for managing Palmer amaranth in corn, cotton and soybean fields, as well as offer a sneak peek at some of the new technologies on the horizon. MSU-MAFES and MSU-Extension specialists will be on hand to provide weed control and production updates.

This event will be held near 400 Tampa Drive in Greenville, MS. To reach the site, travel Highway 82 west through Greenville. After crossing Reed Road, go about 2.2 miles and turn south onto Tampa Drive. The site is about a mile from Highway 82. Event signs will be posted along the route.

Registration is free and lunch is provided. Registration is not required but appreciated to ensure enough food is available for everyone. Participants may register onsite or at http://msucares.com/drec/fieldday/index.html. Boots are recommended. Continuing education credits will be available.

For more information, contact Tom Eubank at (662) 822-1964 or Jason Bond at (662) 820-3282.
