MU Extension weed scientist to
discuss pasture weeds in Linneus

LINNEUS, Mo. - Pasture weeds reduce forage quality and yield. Learn how to control them at an evening workshop presented by University of Missouri Extension on Aug. 14 in Linneus.

MU Extension agronomy specialist Valerie Tate says the results of MU Extension weed scientist Kevin Bradley's work on a recent pasture survey will be shared. This includes the effect of soil fertility on weed pressure.

Weeds replace desirable grass and can rob good forage of water, light, space and nutrients. Poisonous plants can cause livestock to become sick or die, as well as affect forage intake and quality. Bradley's work on how to control weeds through proper soil fertility levels will be shared.

The workshop begins at 6:30 p.m., with registration at 6 p.m. The $15 fee includes a light dinner.

The event is at the MU Forage Systems Research Center, 21262 Genoa Road, east of Linneus. Register by Aug. 10 by calling 660-895-5123 or emailing
