Location: Watertown, WI

Dr. Mark Renz, UW-Madison Extension Weed Specialist in the Agronomy Department, will give an update on Waterhemp Management in Wisconsin forages, its history in Wisconsin, why are we so concerned, and how management differs based on the forage grown. The talk will focus on management in alfalfa.

The final presentation by Will Fulwider, UW-Madison Extension Crops & Soils Educator for Dodge and Dane Counties, highlights what we can learn from global sustainable agriculture systems. Drawing on his background working with wetland rice, agroforestry, and other integrated cropping systems, Will will touch on the core ecological principles of these approaches and what they may look like applied to the context of Wisconsin agriculture.
