Hop production workshops for sprayer calibration and more

UW-Madison Integrated Pest Management specialist Dan Hieder will be speaking at two hop production workshops held in Waterloo and Arkansaw, WI. Both workshops are the same and are titled “Hop Production in Wisconsin: Sprayer Calibration and Proper Pesticide Application.”

Both workshops start at 3:00 pm and are limited to the first 25 registrants at each location. The workshops are part of a larger group of education sessions on Hop and Malting Barley production. The sessions are organized by UW-Extension with funding in 2014 through a SARE, Education and Research Grant.
