This event is part of a series of North Country Twilight Meetings.
This summer, UNH Extension is teaming up with four farms to host a series of twilight meetings. Whether you farm, aspire to farm, or just want to learn a few tips for managing your garden, this series could be for you. At each event, we will take on-site tours and dive deep into each topic. Come to one, or as many as you like. No pre-registration is required and all events are free. Pesticide applicator recertification credits are pending.
Events in this series:
- June 15 - Outsmart Your Weeds, Dalton, NH
- July 12 - Reduced Tillage as a Climate Adaptation Strategy, East Thetford, VT
- August 24 - Monitoring Corn Pests with Trapping, Northumberland, NH
- September 14 - Diagnosing Plant Diseases on the Farm, Bethlehem, NH
At the Outsmart Your Weeds meeting, we will talk about strategies for managing weeds, based on knowing their biology and life cycle. What do these weeds want and how do we prevent them from getting it? Hint: it’s not all about pesticides. The Coos County Conservation District will be there to talk about their tool rental program, give a demonstration and discuss some of their hand tools.
Questions about this event can be directed to Nick Rowley, Coös County Field Specialist, 603-788-4961.
