The Midwest Mechanical Weed Control Field Day is the nation’s premier event
for mechanical weeding tools.

At the morning Expo trade show, see weeding tools and speak with company reps from
manufacturers in the US, Europe, and Japan, and meet the farmers in attendance from all over the region.

At the morning education sessions, learn from experienced farmers and university weed
scientists from surrounding states during the roundtable discussions – topics range from
camera-guided cultivators to tine-weeders. A walk-behind tractor exhibition – ‘Walk-Behind Alley’ – features demonstrations of walk-behind tractors and implements from the past and present.

Trade show exhibitors include supply companies, like equipment dealers for
all manner of machinery, seed, tools, fertilizers, and soils.

In the afternoon, farmers follow the tractors out to the demonstration field, where corn, beets, and brassicas have been planted especially for the demonstrations. Myriad 3-point, camera-guided, autonomous, and belly-mounted cultivators and cultivating tractors will be demonstrated in the field and explained by manufacturers.

These demonstrations will show how the machines should be mounted and properly adjusted according to crop and soil conditions, and will help farmers visualize how the implements can work on their own farms.

Row-crop tools in demonstration include precision-controlled tine-weeders and several types of camera-guided cultivators with finger weeders and all manner of other tooling – see all types of knives, hilling discs, etc. Demonstrations will be held in 5’’ corn.

Vegetable weeding tools include cultivating tractors past and present, 3-point in-row camera guided machines, a variety of belly-mounted and rear-mounted steerable tools, and cultivators from Japan! Demonstrations will be held in 2’’ beets and transplanted brassicas.

Check the event website for demonstration details.
