4th Annual Midwest Mechanical Weed Control Field Day – Episode 2: The Awakening

By Practical Farmers of Iowa

The Midwest Mechanical Weed Control Field Day is the nation’s largest event devoted to weeding tools. This year, due to COVID-19, the field day is being hosted online.

In this three-part series, MMWC field day organizer Sam Hitchcock Tilton and farmer-friend Peter Seeley will host a series of virtual mechanical weed control field days.

Join the pair to see and discuss new and old weed control equipment, including set-up and use in both row crops and vegetables.
