Herbicides 101 For Potato Production

Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2020, 9:30-10:30am

Tuesday, December 15th, 9:30 - 10:30am

Join Dr. Erin Burns with Michigan State University Extension for an exciting in-depth webinar discussion on herbicides for potato production. This presentation will cover herbicides used in potato production, what weeds they control, environmental impacts on herbicide efficacy and fate, and the modes and sites of action of herbicides used in potatoes. We will use this knowledge to design weed management programs that will both control weeds in your field and also delay the evolution of herbicide resistance and preserve all the “herbicide tools” in the “toolbox” for weed management.
