Jane Mangold, invasive plant specialist, Fabian Menalled, cropland weed specialist and Melissa Graves, plant identification diagnostician will host the booth on June 18. They will be there to assist with weed identification and answer questions pertaining to weed issues. The specialists will also provide free MSU Extension factsheets and MontGuides on weed identification and control.
"People are encouraged to bring plant samples to the booth for diagnosis or identification," said Toby Day, Extension horticulturist and Master Gardener coordinator. "If you want to know what plant is invading your garden, pasture or cropland, bring a sample of it to the Gallatin Valley Farmers Market this Saturday," Day said.
The Gallatin County Farmers Market runs from 9 a.m. through noon on Saturdays through Sept. 10. There is no market on July 23.
