From finger weeders to flex-tines to Allis G's and beyond, come learn the principles and tools for precise mechanical weed control from farmers and researchers. New weeding machines are recently available from Europe and many types and models of mechanical weeders will be on display and demonstrated in the field - old and new, American and European. You will hear from farmers using these tools, learn about cultivation techniques in Europe, see tools demonstrated, and enjoy lunch and time to speak with all the growers in attendance. Weeding machinery manufacturers will be displaying their wares as well. Bring your favorite weeding machine to show others if you wish.
Car pools from various regions are available.
