Weed management strategies and their resistance to common chemical practices were the topic du jour at the 66th annual conference of the California Weed Science Society (CWWS). This year's event was held in Monterey, Calif., which one speaker joked needs to be the venue of the Weed Science Society of America's annual conference because of its scenic location and access to great food.
The Jan. 22-24 meeting included a social gathering, and more great food.
The CWWS provides professional education and information related to weed science, encourages weed science research, supports college students seeking careers in weed science and facilitates research cooperation among individuals, agencies and organizations on the topic. Speakers at this year's conference included respected researchers from various universities throughout the United States.
