The weed science program at the University of Illinois invites all weed management practitioners to our annual weed science field tour on Wednesday, June 26 at the Department of Crop Sciences field research location known as the Clem Farm, located at 1114 County Road 1200 East, Champaign. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. and the tour will start at 9:00 a.m. Preregistration is not required, but please let us know in advance if you will be bringing a large group of participants so we can plan accordingly for meals.

Similar to past years, we will walk/drive to the fields where participants can join in a guided (but informal) tour format. The tour will provide ample opportunity to look at research plots and interact with weed science faculty, staff, and graduate students. Participants can compare their favorite corn and soybean herbicide programs to other commercial programs and get an early look at a few new products that soon will be on the market. The tour will conclude around noon with lunch.

Cost for the weed science tour is $10, which will help defray the cost of the field tour book, refreshments and box lunch. We will apply for 2 hours of CCA credit under the IPM category.  If you have any questions about the weed science tour, please feel free to contact Caleb Wepprecht (815-671-1050, calebbw@illinois.edu), Jasmine Mausbach (402-885-0745, jmaus96@illinois.edu), or Aaron Hager (217-621-8963, hager@illinois.edu).
