The Northeastern Weed Science Society
will hold its annual meeting in conjunction with the Northeastern Plant, Pest and Soils Conference
. The event will feature nearly 100 papers and posters focused on weed management information for agronomic crops, turf, ornamentals, fruits, vegetables, herbs – and more.
Two symposia are scheduled, including one on effective science communication and another on the benefits and challenges of participatory research. A mini-workshop is planned on weed management in pollinator plantings, and a special seminar will focus on facts about glyphosate.
