POCAHONTAS – Two upcoming field days will address the use of alfalfa as a cover crop and as an effective weapon in the ongoing war against Palmer amaranth, commonly known as pigweed.

On Sept. 9, agronomists and researchers with the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture will present the first of the two events at the James Farm, located at 4511 AR-304, east of Pocahontas. The second event, rescheduled from an earlier date this summer, will be held Sept. 20 at Washington Springs Ag, located at 175A County Road 324, near Cherry Valley.
