I think we had a really good program this year made up of a half-day field tour in the morning followed by lunch and an afternoon program of research presentations. We also had one of the highest number of participants (about 160 total) that we've had in a while. We've maxed out our registration for the past five or so years so this remains a popular...

For Immediate Release
WSSA to Sponsor Second National Summit on Herbicide Resistance
LAWRENCE, Kansas – May 15, 2014 – Today the Weed Science Society of America (WSSA) announced plans for a second national scientific summit...
Today, May 8th, marks the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Smith-Lever Act that resulted in the creation of Cooperative Extension. The UC Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) and the three land-grant campuses in the UC system (Davis, Berkeley, and Riverside) as well as most of the county-based UCCE offices are celebrating this milestone in various ways under the banner “A Celebration of Science and Service”.
I have been involved in applied research and extension for almost 20 years during career stops at Iowa State University, University of Idaho, Oregon State University, Colorado State University, USDA-ARS, and for the past five years on campus at UC Davis. I'm very proud...
I'm at my desk today catching up (slightly) on things that accumulated during the past few months when it seemed like I was in meetings more than I was anywhere else. I thought I'd share a few thoughts on one upcoming meeting to put on your "I should think about attending" radar as well as three recent weed science meetings.
For your radar:
Weed Day 2014 at UC Davis will be held on July 10, 2014. I'm the chairperson for this year's Weed Day, the 58th annual Weed Day by the way. At this point, the program is a work-in-progress, but will have a similar format to previous years. We'll start off with a...
