Farmers and ranchers can see the results of different herbicide treatments to control Honey Locust trees in pastures.
In 2012 and 2013, treatments were made to nearly 400 thorny locust trees in a pasture to test which products and treatments yielded the best results. Both tests were evaluated for two consecutive years to see if re-sprouting of trees occurred.
See the results at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and concluding at approximately 7:45 p.m. It is located approximately 6 miles north of Hays at the intersection of U.S. Highway 183 and Locust Grove Road, which is 1 mile south of Buckeye Road on the west side of the highway.
If time allows, discussion on yucca control options and musk thistle will be presented.
No RSVP is necessary; refreshments will be provided by K-State Ellis County Extension Office. For more information, call (785) 628-9430.
