Thursday, March 7, 12 p.m. - 1 p.m. Eastern Time
Investigating Strategies for Infuriating In-Row Weeds in Corn
Elijah Dean of Timberlane Organic Farms in Clyde, Ohio, will describe his experiments with higher seeding rates to combat in-row weeds. Eli will describe how the initial idea for this trial came while experimenting with 60” rows. He’ll talk about how he laid out a simple trial on his own farm and what he learned. We’ll also discuss how this led to a larger Ohio State USDA OREI grant proposal. Time permitting, Eli may talk about his many other research interests in agronomic crops as well. Join us and bring your questions!
