Resistant weeds topic of management roundtable Feb. 12


Managing resistant weeds, one of the most difficult tasks in farming today, is the topic of an informal roundtable discussion set for Feb. 12 at the Dumas Community Center. The meeting will begin at 4:30 p.m.

There's no cost to attend, but RSVPs to the Desha County Extension office, 870-222-3972, are appreciated for a dinner head count. In addition to the roundtable, there will also be grower recognitions and an Industry Update from agricultural service company representatives. Registered attendees will be entered into drawings for door prizes. For Certified Crop Advisors, continuing education credits will be available.

"This is chance for growers and consultants to share, informally, some of the concerns and issues they have had in managing the problem of resistant weeds with experts from the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture. It will also be a good opportunity to hear industry representatives explain their resistance management programs or discuss any new products that they may have to offer," said Wes Kirkpatrick, Desha County Extension staff chair for the division.

Among those taking part in the round table, Extension Weed Scientists Bob Scott and Tom Barber; Jason Kelley, Extension wheat and feed grains agronomist; Jeremy Ross, soybean agronomist; and Jarrod Hardke, Extension rice agronomist.

The meeting will also include updates from industry sponsors of the event.

For more information and to RSVP, contact the Desha County Extension Office at 870-222-3972 or 870-382-4785.
