2022 Joint CWSS/CSA Meeting

On behalf of the Canadian Weed Science Society/ Société Canadienne de Malherbologie, we wish to welcome you to our 2022 Annual General Meeting to be held jointly with the Canadian Society of Agronomy/ Société Canadienne d’Agronomie. The theme of this year’s meeting is “Precision Weed Management – From Promise to (Almost) Reality” and will be held at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel located at 1919 Upper Water St, Halifax NS, B3J 3J5 on the waterfront from November 14th to 17th 2022. Halifax was founded in 1749 and is the largest city and economic hub of Atlantic Canada. Halifax is home to the oldest farmer’s market in North America, the Alexander Keith’s brewery and the Halifax Public Gardens, a National Historic site established in 1867. Stanfield International Airport located north of Halifax provides flight connections to a variety of locations across Canada, the United States and several European cities.

The conference organizers have developed an exciting program including graduate student presentations, concurrent oral and poster presentation sessions on weed management and agronomy, a workshop on statistical analyses and two symposia, one on precision agriculture and another on biomass crops.

Pre-conference tours are in the works that will showcase the rich natural biodiversity and history of the region as well as the diverse agricultural systems of Nova Scotia.
