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 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.

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