The Iowa State University Integrated Crop Management Conference is Iowa's premier crop production education event. No other program in Iowa brings together the diverse range of topics, slate of expert presenters and results of the latest University research.
The ICM Conference offers workshops focusing on the latest in crop production technology. Experts from Iowa and surrounding states will provide research updates and results in soil fertility, soil and water management, crop production and pest management.
Herbicide-resistant giant ragweed and waterhemp continue to spread across the midwestern U.S. and are occurring more frequently in the same fields, making control with herbicides especially difficult. Weed biology is one of the most important factors to consider when developing a successful weed management program, with three main factors influencing success: 1) weed emergence patterns, 2) the weed seed bank, and 3) incorporating sound agronomic practices.
