It has been a long time since you've heard from me, and I know we've all been dealing with the pandemic and related issues for over a year now. I have been working on getting out a newsletter and some of the articles are quite large. As a result we are going to try a different approach. The newsletter will be on the NWMA website https: //nvwma.org/ which will hopefully enable everyone to see what is in it.
This is the year that we have our Biennial NWMA meeting! The meeting will be October 20 and 21 in-person at the Carson Valley Inn located in Minden, Nevada. The presentations will enable attendees to receive CEUs for their pesticide license renewal as well as providing new information about weed issues in Nevada. We are making arrangements to provide the meeting online as well as in person. Hopefully, everyone will be able to attend in person. Click here to register!
Also of interest: two articles by Barry Perryman and colleagues (some from the University of Nevada, Reno) here and here about grazing and invasive annual grasses in the West, and a quick read on managing Canada thistle in lawns.
Hope to see you at the conference in October!
