The University of California Cooperative Extension in cooperation with other agencies will be hosting a series of workshops on yellow starthistle management. According to Scott Oneto, UC Farm Advisor and speaker, "Yellow Starthisle is a noxious weed that infests over 15 million acres in California. We have had a number of bad years and this year is projected to be a really bad weed year. The rainfall patterns have been ideal for yellow starthisle germination and we are encouraging everyone to work diligently to control invasive weeds this spring".
The workshops will cover management strategies for yellow starthislte ranging from biological, mechanical and chemical control. Other topics include sprayer calibration and pesticide safety. The workshops will be held in two locations in Tuolumne County.
All workshops are free and cover the same topics. For more information, call the UC Cooperative Extension office at (209) 533-5695. Two hours of continuing education credits with the California Department of Pesticide Regulation are available.
