UAEX Weed Control Text Message Updates

By: Tommy Butts, Extension Weed Scientist

Interested in receiving up-to-date University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture weed control information and recommendations directly to your text messaging inbox? Look no further. We are rolling out a text messaging service from the UAEX Weed Science Extension specialists. If you are interested in this service, please opt-in through the following process: 

  1. Text "weeds" to the number 69922.
  1. Once you’ve sent "weeds" to 69922, you should receive an automatic reply confirming your enrollment in the group (Fig. 1). 
  1. There are also additional row crop text lists available through UAEX. If you would like to join multiple lists, send separate text messages with each list word below to 69922 (Fig. 2). 
  • Cotton
  • Fieldcorn (all one word)
  • Rice
  • Soil
  • Sorghum
  • Soybean
  • Wheat 
  1. Reply STOP to cancel, HELP for help. Msg&data rates may apply. Terms & privacy: io/5eSz 

We recommend saving 69922 as a contact in your phone. If you ever have a question regarding a message sent, you can reply directly to the text message. The responses will only be visible to the Extension specialists, and we will reply on a one-on-one personal basis.

If you have any questions regarding the UAEX Weed Control or Row Crop Text Message Updates, please feel free to contact me (, and thank you for continuing to support the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture.
