BROOKINGS, S.D. - The SDSU Extension Weed Evaluation Extension Demonstration project will be available to the public at the South Dakota State Fair September 2 - September 7. Due to health concerns surrounding COVID-19, the booth will not be staffed this year, however an SDSU Extension specialist will be available via phone to answer consumer questions.
“I will be standing by the phone waiting to answer questions while the building is open,” said Paul O. Johnson, SDSU Extension Weed Science Coordinator.
Located in the southwest corner of the Expo building, the Weed Evaluation Extension Demonstration project booth will feature the newest state-wide noxious weed. Additionally, the booth will display crop and pasture weeds, other noxious weeds and a lawn and garden weed area.
“The display will, again, have several publications that you can take home with you to read up on the areas of your concern,” said Johnson.
The latest edition of the South Dakota Weed Identification Book will be available for visitors to pick up, free of charge. Information included in the book can also be accessed on the SDSU Extension website.
