Michigan State University Extension will be again hosting a series of 7 interactive online meetings this season to allow easy communication between producers and MSU faculty.  These informal sessions will include crop and pest updates from Dr. Rob Sirrine and Erin Lizotte as well as deep dives by university specialists with topics ranging from disease management to irrigation and nutrient management.  Pesticide credits for Michigan certified applicators will be available (1 per week attended).  In addition, MSU faculty and veteran growers will drop in to address timely issues and provide research project updates.  Bring your field notes too!  We want to hear what's going on in your orchard.

These Thursday sessions will begin on May 23rd and run every-other-week through August 29th (excluding July 4th) from 1:30 - 2:30 PM EST.  Registration is free but required.  Sign up now at
