Diagnostic Days

South West Crop Diagnostic Days will be held on July 6 and 7, 2011 at Ridgetown Campus.  There are a number of topics of interest to those involved with vegetable production.

  • Does Sampling Technique and Handling Matter? From nitrogen to nematodes, we’ll explore how we can do better.
  • Being a Better Weed Scout – Strengthen your skills while encountering a series of field scenarios of weed populations.
  • Spray Coverage vs. Travel Speed – Does travel speed always affect spray coverage and spray penetration?
  • Assessing Soil Health – Take a closer look at the health of soil and how management can affect it.
  • The Next Invasive – Brown Marmorated Stink Bug ID and Steps In Bee Safety When Applying Pesticides.
  • The Value of Windbreaks – Learn how windbreaks not only protect your soil and yield but improve spray applications.
