UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment specialists will present the latest information on important topics such as dicamba stewardship and herbicide-resistant weeds, nutrient placement and the effects of potassium to tobacco production.

“These intentionally specialized tours are part of the efforts by faculty and staff at the UK Grain and Forage Center of Excellence to give producers timely, commodity-specific information,” said Chad Lee, director of the Grain and Forage Center of Excellence.

Program organizers have requested continuing education units for pesticide applicators and Certified Crop Advisers.
