History: The Weed Science Seminar is a biannual event promoted by the Crop Protection Graduate Program and organized by the Weed Science Research Group from the Federal University of Pelotas in partnership with several institutions in Southern Brazil.  This year the event is a promoted not only by the Crop Protection Graduate Program but is an effort of the graduate programs from UEM, UFRGS, UNESP and UFAM.  This partnership is an effort to integrate the institution on research, extension and education activities.

In the first two days of the event is the Seminar and in the last day we will have the “Primer Taller Latinoamericano de Malezas” which will be a workshop aiming at congregate researchers from key Latin American countries to discuss The Challenges and Opportunities for Weed Managements in their countries to find opportunities to solve local and regional weed problems. At the end of the workshop we will make a joint effort to build collaborative projects.

The events are sponsored by Corteva, BASF, CAPES and FAPERGS.

In this event we will discuss the challenge to train the next generation of weed scientist, the new technologies in weed management, the auxin herbicides and herbicide toxicology and legislation.

The community is welcome to participate in both events.
