NC-IPM Planning Meeting

September 25, 2019, 10-12 (ET)

The impact of dicamba and 2,4-D on fruit, vegetable, and nursery crops is one of the most pressing issues in our industry today. IPM leadership at the national level recognizes the gravity of the situation and has made a special allocation to begin addressing the problem.

We invite you to be part of this process by joining a planning meeting with other horticultural and agronomic weed specialists this fall. The timing will enable regional agronomic weed scientists in Purdue to join in conversation with horticultural crop weed scientists attending the IR4 meeting in Maryland. Additional participants are also welcome to join us online. 

Meeting Goals:

  • Share resources, research, and other efforts that are already available or underway. 
  • Identify the most urgently needed educational tools to address 2,4-D and dicamba drift.
  • Identify gaps in our knowledge and resources to guide this and future educational and research initiative.

Please register below and we will send meeting reminders and additional information (agenda, online meeting links and meeting locations, etc).
