Weed management has become one of the most significant challenges in crop production as herbicide resistance continues to increase.  Learn about the latest research and information to address these challenges by attending a “Strategic Farming:  Growing Soybeans That Out-Compete Weeds” workshop this winter.  Registration is now open at https://z.umn.edu/strategic-farming

By attending, you will learn about:

  • Growing soybeans that out-compete weeds.
    • What are the impacts of row spacing, plant population, canopy closure, and pest pressure on soybean competitiveness and profitability?
  • Beating weeds at their own game.
    • How can we use weed biology to our advantage?
  • Breaking the cycle of loving a technology to death:  Get off the resistance treadmill.
    • What are some new viable weed management options that we can implement now
  • Implementing a game plan.
    • What is your strategy to win against weeds?
