The 2nd Annual Midwest Mechanical Weed Control Field Day is the Midwest’s largest field day devoted to vegetable growers and mechanical weed control. A full day of exhibits, demonstrations, farmers, and industry experts comes to Atlanta, Illinois. Hans Bishop, co-owner of PrairiErth Farm, will be hosting the event in the farm’s new packing shed, which also serves as a local Food Hub and Educational Center. The event is being planned by Sam Hitchcock Tilton, an organizer of last year’s event and Midwest representative for KULT-Kress precision weeding tools, and The Land Connection, an Illinois non-profit organization that promotes farmer training and land stewardship. The field day is an ideal opportunity for farmers to learn about weeding tools and techniques. The keynote presentation will be by Allen Philo.
