September 12 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The University of Maine is hosting a mechanical weed control field day at the Rogers Farm.  This event will feature tool demonstrations and research results for both vegetable and grain production. Hand-tools, walk-behind tractors/tool carriers, and tractor-mounted equipment will be on display and demonstrated in the field, including equipment from Terrateck® and Johnny’s Selected Seeds, HAK®, Tilmor®, K.U.L.T.-Kress®, Garford®, Trefler® Harrows, and Franklin Robotics.  We invite farmers of all levels of experience and production to participate.

  • Research presentations and posters
  • Field demonstrations of tools for small-, mid- and large-scale growers
  • Friendly competition testing your weed knowledge and cultivation skills!
  • Connect with fellow growers, researchers, and industry representatives

Stay tuned for more details and information on how to register!
