Most of the research featured in the 2021 Weed Tour involves management of glyphosate-resistant grass species and multiple herbicide-resistant Palmer amaranth.
The University of Tennessee will hold its annual weed tour on Wednesday, June 16 in Jackson, Tenn.

The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture will host the annual Weed Tour on Wednesday, June 16 at the West Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center.

The guided tour will feature 60 weed management research tests in corn, soybean and cotton as well as a demonstration of herbicide symptomology.

Weed Tour runs from 9 – 11:50 a.m., with registration opening at 8:30 a.m. A light breakfast will be served. Hand sanitizer will be available. Please bring your mask for situations where you cannot socially distance, especially if you are not vaccinated against Covid-19.

Larry Steckel, UT Extension weed specialist, will lead the tour, along with Dr. Clay Perkins, and PhD candidate Delaney Foster with the UT Department of Plant Sciences.

Most of the research featured in the 2021 Weed Tour involves management of glyphosate-resistant grass species and multiple herbicide-resistant Palmer amaranth. Management of these weeds in Liberty, Balance Bean, glyphosate, Xtend and Enlist weed control systems along with some of the new herbicide traits on the horizon in cotton and soybeans will be highlighted.

The tour will also cover research-based strategies to manage the increasing problem with glyphosate-resistant grass species, as well as glyphosate/PPO/dicamba-resistant Palmer amaranth. Cultural weed control practices and many of the newer premixes in corn and soybean will be demonstrated.

The West Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center is located at 605 Airways Boulevard, Jackson, Tennessee. Upon arrival, follow signs to the weed management research plots.
