The Michigan State University Extension field crops team hosts the Field Crops Webinar Series each winter to educate farmers, agribusiness professionals and ag-support agencies about a wide range of topics critical to field crop production. Participants hear presentations from MSU Extension Field Crops specialists and educators as well as experts outside of MSU. This series is held every year on Monday evenings from 7-8 p.m. February through March.

The theme for this year's series was “Two for the Price of One: Conversations in Row Crop Agriculture” where each session featured two speakers giving short presentations and discussing different aspects of the topic in an informal talk-show/podcast format. There was plenty of opportunity for interaction with the audience and numerous questions were fielded each night. Participants were also eligible to earn one Michigan pesticide recertification (RUP) credit for attending each live session. Each session was recorded, captioned, and made available to the paid participants the same week.

To maximize the reach of the program and provide a greater benefit to our agricultural community, the field crops team makes these recordings available to the general public free of charge after the start of the cropping season. These are available on the MSU Extension Field Crops team website. You can click on the Field Crop Webinar Series tab at the top to see a list of recordings (chronologically, most recent on top) or you can click the Videos tab on the toolbar below and search for videos by topic, presenter, etc. You can also find recordings from the team’s Virtual Breakfast sessions here. Recordings from past seasons of the Field Crops Webinar Series are also available.
