Successful weed management can seem like an uphill battle, especially for organic farms. Learning about the basic principles and available tools for precise mechanical weed control is the key to creating a comprehensive plan that not only combats unwanted plants but also promotes responsible land stewardship. 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.

At the field day you’ll:
• Hear from national and international experts on weeding tools and techniques
• Meet with over 150 farmers from all over the Midwest and Canada
• See exhibits of most of the cultivation tools currently manufactured, speak with company reps, and see extensive field demos
• Learn about new and retro-fitted camera-guided cultivators and see them running in the field
