Weed Control, Fertilizer Needs Highlight Upcoming MeetingsFri, 24 Feb 2012 14:17:35 CST
Spring brings agricultural producers two challenges - noxious weeds and fertilizer needs. To help provide timely information, The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host two Fertilizer and Weed Control events in March.
The first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 13, at the Mid-America Technology Center, located at 27438 SH 59 in Wayne. The second meeting will be on Tuesday, March 27, at Kiamichi Technology Center, located at 1301 West Liberty Rd. in Atoka. Each meeting will take place from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on its respective day.
During the workshop, participants will learn the proper process for applying fertilizer to pastures and hay fields, as well as a variety of methods for controlling the common weeds that plague the Southern Great Plains.
“Cost-effective fertilization and weed control practices are essential in cattle and hay production,” said Eddie Funderburg, Ph.D., senior soils and crops consultant. “These meetings are designed to answer any and all questions so producers are better equipped to meet the challenges at their farm or ranch.”
The seminar is offered at no charge, but preregistration is requested. For additional information or to register, please click here, or call Tracy Cumbie at 580.224.6292.
