Weed ID Workshop

— Written By and last updated by

Weeds are a plant out of place, right? Well as livestock producers, we are dealing with a lot of misplaced plants. Weeds rob our forages of nutrients and limit our forage yields, so why do we put up with them?

North Carolina Cooperative Extension-Burke County Center will present a Weed ID and Management Workshop on Thursday, September 14th, 2017, from 6-8 p.m. at the Burke County Agricultural Building.

The Burke County Cattlemen’s Association will sponsor a meal with hamburgers and hotdogs for dinner. The program gets under way at 6:30 with topics including: weed identification, control methods, and effective pesticide use. There will be two hours of pesticide credits given for private applicators in the X category.

If you are a livestock producer in Burke County and would like to learn more about Weed ID and Management, please feel free to attend. Our goal is to provide producers with the information necessary to make sound decisions pertinent to their operations to identify and manage weeds, in order to maximize forage production on their operations.

If you would like to attend, please call the Extension office at 828-764-9480 to register.
