USDA’s Agricultural Research Service and Weed Science Society of America Monday announced the launch of a free webinar series focusing on current research and advancements in managing weeds and invasive plants. By collaborating with WSSA, ARS scientists aim to highlight the important research that has contributed to the development of sustainable practices to control weeds and invasive plants. Stanley Culpepper, WSSA president, says the organization is “excited to host a series of webinars to highlight the contribution of ARS scientists to our discipline.” They have scheduled ten webinars from April through June with three themes: tactics, mechanisms and impacts. Presentations will be given by USDA-ARS weed science research experts starting April 5. The webinars will occur every Tuesday from 2-3p.m. ET and include an interactive Q&A session. To attend the webinar, please register in advance. The webinar is open to the public, and WSSA membership is not required. You can register and learn more on the WSSA website, wssa.memberclicks.net.
