● Stale seedbed programs to reduce weed competition

● Continuous tillage influence on soil weed seed populations

● Multiyear cover cropping and impact on weed competition

● Basic weed biology (weed seed dormancy/emergence and perennial weed population dynamics) to assist farmers in weed control practices

● Precision cultivation including tractor mounted and manual implements

● Principles of flaming for weed control

● ORMI approved herbicide demonstrations including backpack sprayer operation for precision application

● Mulching techniques for effective weed suppression in vegetable crops
