Participants will break into two groups that will rotate during the workshop. During this time participants will learn identification of weeds via live samples. Prior to breaking into groups, participants will learn key identification characteristics for each weed family and species present. Herbicide labelling, formulations and factors affecting application will also be discussed. This session is primarily hands-on and standing for periods of time is required.
