The registration fee is $20 per person, which includes the cost of lunch, refreshments and the 2015 E-434 “MSU Weed Control Guide for Field Crops and Forages.”

This program is designed to help farmers and crop consultants learn about new pests in Michigan and changes in MSU Extension recommendations in field crop weed, insect and disease control and soil fertility for the 2015 growing season. The topics include integrated management of white mold, foliar fungicides in corn, nitrogen fertilizer losses, cover crops, weed control options, western corn rootworm resistance, wheat management and grain marketing.
