Weed Identification and Scouting: a Field Training in English and Spanish
The first step in effective management of weeds is proper identification. Proper weed scouting provides information about weed pressure and the effectiveness of control measures. Each participant will receive a full-color guide entitled "Stubborn Weeds of Pennsylvania" (available in English and Spanish).
Session Topics (in English and Spanish):
- weed identification and scouting
- weed control for nursery, landscape and greenhouse operations
- safe application of herbicides
- USDA NRCS programs and technical assistance
Pesticide recertification credits (1 core and 2 category PC, 06, 07, 18, 22, and 23) have been granted by PDA. There is no charge for this meeting.
The workshop and weed guides are supported by a PDA Specialty Crop Block Grant titled "Sustainable Production and Pest Management Innovations for Next Generation Young and Latino Specialty Crop Growers" (Grant ME#44166076).
