Rainy morning, active afternoon

Posted by Russel Higgins - Weeds

Light rain in the morning did little to dampen activities at the NIARC, by mid morning we were able to apply post herbicides on V4 corn, and soil samples were collected from one of the entomology studies. The most colorful activity of the day was accomplished by Vince Filiceti, a researcher for Dr. Adam Davis. Vince had the task of marking locations for future weeds to be planted in a continuation of Dr. Davis study with Palmer amaranth and Shattercane. When completed he will have set 1536 pink flags, adding a touch of color to the NIARC!
