Weed Control Strategies for growers

Weeds should be identified as to whether they are grasses, broad-leafed weeds or sedges and be identified by name. When you properly ID your weed (you can always call your UF-Extension agent to help you) then the proper pre-emergent and/or post-emergent herbicide(s) can be chosen to give efficient control.

OK, where I am going with all this? On February 20th (YES, on a holyday) BASF and UF-Extension Program are conducting an incredible workshop series on Weeds and their management. In South Florida, Weed Control Strategies for Ornamentals will be hosted at University of Florida Extension Auditorium in Homestead area (18710 S.W. 288 Street. Homestead, FL 33030)
We will have not one, but two weed experts:
