The 2021 SWSS Weed Contest Announcement
Dear SWSS Membership,
The SWSS and Corteva Agriscience are excited about the opportunity to host the 2021 SWSS Summer Weed Contest in Stoneville, MS on August 3rd, 2021. The current COVID19 pandemic is still a concern but specific safety guidelines will be instituted at the contest in order to provide a safe event. We ask that all Universities review the Safety Guideline document and determine if they can participate. A strict deadline of April 15th, 2021 to report your intent to participate or not participate is strongly encouraged. Due to these safety guidelines, there will only be 10 total teams allowed to compete, and only one 4 person graduate-level team can be entered per University. As well as 2 alternates will be allowed per University. Also if there are not at least 5 teams declaring intent to participate then the contest will be postponed till 2022. Please send your intent to participate or not to participate no later than April 15th, 2021 to Andrew.firstname.lastname@example.org and copy in Kelley@imigroup.org .
Drew Ellis, Weed Contest Chairman
