The United Soybean Board (USB) Take Action initiative and university weed scientists from across the Midwest have developed a free webinar series covering various weed and herbicide management issues.
Two weed scientists will give 15 minute presentations at each webinar and there will be opportunities for viewers to ask questions. Four webinars remain in the series.
You can attend sessions live every Thursday, from March 5 to March 26, at 10 am CST. If you can’t make that time, all sessions will be recorded and available for viewing online at a later date.
