From page A7 | January 23, 2013 |

The University of California Cooperative Extension in cooperation with other local agencies will be hosting a series of workshops on yellow starthistle management.

According to Scott Oneto, UC Farm Advisor and speaker, “Yellow starthistle is a noxious weed that infests over 15 million acres in California. We have had a number of bad years and this year is projected to be a really bad weed year. The rainfall patterns have been ideal for yellow starthistle germination and we are encouraging everyone to work diligently to control invasive weeds this spring.”

The workshop will cover the different management strategies for yellow starthistle ranging from biological, mechanical and chemical control. Other topics include sprayer calibration and pesticide safety. The workshop will be held on the following dates and locations throughout the region:

• On Feb. 13 in Murphys from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Murphys Library, 480 Park Lane; and in San Andreas from 3 to 5 p.m. at the San Andreas Library, 891 Mountain Ranch Rd.

• On Feb. 22 in Sonora from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Ambulance Training Room, 18440 Striker Ct; and in Groveland from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Groveland Community Hall, State Highway 120.

• On Feb. 26 in Jackson from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Amador UCCE Office, 12200B Airport Rd; and in Plymouth from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Shenandoah Schoolhouse, Shenandoah School Rd.

• On Feb. 28 in El Dorado Hills from 9 to 11 a.m. at Fire Station #85, 1050 Wilson Blvd; and in Placerville from 3 to 5 p.m. at the El Dorado Main Library, 345 Fair Lane.
