Blueberry Weed Control Demonstration – Tuesday, June 28

Blueberry growers can see different herbicides and techniques at Bocock Farm north of South Haven.

Blueberry growers are invited to a weed control demonstration at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, June 28. Dr. Eric Hanson will be on hand to discuss the herbicide treatments he applied last fall and this spring to demonstrate the effectiveness of new and old blueberry herbicides. You will see some very interesting contrasts between various herbicide combinations applied in either the fall or the spring, and also observed the efficacy of newer products (Callisto, Chateau, Sandea) on a variety of weeds. Many treatments will be labeled for easy comparison of different treatments.

We will meet at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, June 28, at the Bocock's New Day Blueberry Farm at 6906 103rd Ave., located between 69th and 70th Streets, north of South Haven. There is no charge (and no meal) for this meeting.

The meeting is open to everyone who wants to improve their weed management skills and strategies. Please join us for a discussion and tour of weed management options.
