Missouri hosts crop management conference

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The University of Missouri is hosting a two-day crop management conference to update farmers on disease, insect and weed problems.

The annual conference begins today (Wednesday) and features speakers from the University of Wisconsin, the federal Department of Agriculture and elsewhere.

Among the scheduled topics is a discussion of using fungicides to enhance the yield of field crops rather to just control the spread of disease.

The conference will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn. Additional details can be found at www.plantsci.missouri.edu/cmc.
