LSU AgCenter Will Hold Watermelon Weed Management Demonstration

Weed management is one of a multitude of challenges that vegetable growers face. LSU AgCenter weed scientist Dr. Ron Strahan and research associate Mr. David Sexton have applied different herbicide treatments to plots in Mr. Perry Talley’s watermelon field in the Rio community of Washington Parish to demonstrate their comparative effectiveness. A demonstration of the results of these treatments will be held at 9:00 AM on Thursday, June 16, 2022. 

Those who would like to view these plots and discuss watermelon weed management are welcome to attend. If you plan to come, please contact horticulture agent Dr. Mary Helen Ferguson ( or 985-277-1850) for directions to the field or for accommodations for persons with disabilities. 

The LSU AgCenter and LSU provide equal opportunities in programs and employment. 

Note that Mr. Talley’s farm is wholesale only and does not offer watermelon sales to individuals.
