Rice growers, consultants and ag professionals:
Join us for crucial updates on current weed resistance in the rice-farming south by Dr. Jason Norsworthy, from the University of Arkansas. Dr. Norsworthy will also dive into the latest herbicide strategies he’s developed and researched to address the issues of barnyardgrass, palmer amaranth and more. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to learn what's new and forthcoming in the crop protection pipeline for addressing the ever-growing issue of weeds in rice.
Takeaways from this webinar include:
- Expertise on the current herbicide resistance situation in rice production
- A map of programs for controlling herbicide resistant weeds in rice production
- Crop protection recommendations for controlling the weed spectrum associated with row rice production
- An inside look at innovations in rice weed control in the production pipeline for the next 5-10 years
