Pest management will be the focus of UW-Extension Summer Field Day on May 30 in Sturgeon Bay. Five UW-Extension agriculture experts will discuss some of the issues farmers are facing early on in the planting season including herbicide resistant weeds and an increase in pests like the black top worm. With farmers having to make sure every dollar and bushel count, Door County UW-Extension agriculture educator Annie Deutsch says this will be a great update for farmers as planting continues.
The Summer Field Day presentation, which will cover insects, weeds, diseases, and alfalfa, will take place at Olson Family Farms beginning at 1 p.m. The event is free but registration with the UW-Extension office is required.
