Living Weed Exhibit at Carrington REC
The first step in weed management is plant identification, and one resource to assist farmers and crop advisers is the Carrington REC’s living weed exhibit.
During the crop season, the exhibit has over 60 weeds on display. The plants are primarily organized by lifecycle: annuals, winter annuals, biennials and perennials. In addition, the 13 North Dakota state noxious weeds are grouped together.
Persons may view the weed exhibit at any time. The display is located south of the headquarters building and parking lot. Tours can also be arranged by calling the Center. The Center uses the site for training including the North Dakota Weed Control Association’s Sprayer School and NDSU Extension’s Crop Management Field School.
