K-State Extension to host weed school


Glyphosate-resistant and ALS-resistant weed populations have been increasing in north central Kansas. As a result, weed control strategies with herbicides have become more challenging, and the need for weed educational programs has also expanded.

Therefore, the K-State Research and Extension-River Valley District has scheduled an "Area In-Depth Weed Management Update" training on Feb. 22, 2013 in the Cook Theatre at Cloud County Community College, Concordia. All agribusiness representatives, county weed departments, crop scouts, landlords, field managers and any other interested agricultural supporters are invited to participate.

Kansas State Extension specialists Dallas Peterson, Curtis Thompson and John Slocombe will be on-site to provide hands-on instruction. Topics will include: "Integrated Weed Management and Weed Biology," "Weed Seedling Identification," "Herbicide Resistance and Glyphosate Management," "Weed Control in Field Crops;" and "Sprayer Application Technology." Live weed seedlings will provide hands-on identification experience. The latest K-State weed control research, and new herbicides update will also be highlighted.

This event qualifies for Certified Crop Advisor and Commercial Pesticide Applicator Re-Certification Credits hours as well. Pre-registrations and registration fees are required by Feb. 8, 2013, so a lunch count may be tallied. Call the River Valley Extension District-Concordia Office (785-243-8185) for more information and to pre-register.

More information on weed management and control is available at the K-State website at or any of our River Valley Extension District offices: Belleville, 785-527-5084; Clay Center, 785-632-5335; Concordia, 785-243-8185; or Washington, 785-325-2121.
