Bristlecone Convention Center - 150 W 6th St, Ely, NV 89301

ENLC and Tri-County Weed Control hope to see you this coming January for the 13th Annual Winter Weed Conference at the Bristlecone Convention Center in Ely, Nevada. Presenters from throughout the West will discuss topics ranging from ecological considerations to emerging technology in the fight against noxious and invasive weeds. This event is an excellent opportunity to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) required for ongoing pesticide applicator certification with the Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA). NDA will administer the applicator’s test on the afternoon of the 11th for anyone who is not a certified applicator and wishes to become one.

Agenda

A draft agenda will be updated as speakers are confirmed. Some of the topics to be covered include:

  • Nevada Applicator Rule Changes
  • Drones and weeds
  • Consideration of Pollinator Protection from Herbicide Applicators in Noxious Weed IPM
  • Integrated Pest Management Practices for Invasive Species and Native Pollinators
  • Water Quality Impacts on Herbicide Efficacy
  • Cleantraxx: a new pre-emergent tool in non-crop sites
  • Nevada’s Weed Free Gravel and Hay
  • Mining, Ranching and Invasives
