The University of Tennessee Weed Tour will be held Wednesday, June 19 at the West Tennessee Research & Education Center in Jackson, TN (605 Airways Blvd). Registration will start at 8:30 A.M. and the tour will begin at 9:00 A.M. It will end about 11:30. We will have breakfast biscuits available before the tour starts.
This guided tour will cover 60 weed management research tests in corn, soybean and cotton. Most of the research shown will be on management of goosegrass, jungle rice and glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth. Management of these weeds in Enlist, HT3, Liberty Link GT27 and Xtend weed management systems along with integration of those systems with cover crops will be highlighted. Also some strategies to manage the increasing problem with glyphosate-resistant grass species as well as glyphosate/PPO-resistant Palmer amaranth will be discussed.
Moreover, many of the newer premixes in corn and soybean will be demonstrated. Ph.D candidate Clay Perkins, myself and our special guest, Dr. Travis Legleiter, Weed Scientist with the University of Kentucky at Princeton, will lead the tours and be available for consultation as well as discussion of issues and product performance.
