Midwest Mechanical Weed Control Field Day 2019

The 3rd annual Midwest Mechanical Weed Control Field Day is bringing this hands-on learning event to Waukesha, WI. We have gathered weeding tools and allied equipment, keynote speakers, company representatives, farmer-to-farmer networking, and in-field equipment demonstrations.

This year’s Midwest Mechanical Weed Control Field Day is an ideal opportunity for farmers to learn about weeding tools and techniques, including precision guidance. This year’s event will continue the strong focus on vegetable and specialty-crop machines, but new this year is a row-crop section – with its own weeding tool companies, round-table topics, and field demonstrations. Effective mechanical weed control is the key to creating a comprehensive plan that not only combats unwanted plants but also promotes responsible land stewardship.
