What’s it all about?

Michigan State University Extension specialists and educators who work with field crops have a new offering this season, a series of “Virtual Breakfast” meetings. These 30-minute online meetings include discussion of current field and weather conditions, timely crop production tips and the latest information on emerging issues likely to impact farmers. The meetings are recorded and posted online, too.

The typical structure is a 10-minute update from a campus faculty specialist, then a 10-minute update from MSU agricultural meteorologist and climate specialist Jeff Andresen, followed by 10 minutes of open questions and discussion from all participants. A sampling of upcoming topics includes:  May 10 – wheat update; May 17 - alfalfa cutting schedules; May 24 - early-season insects;  May 31 – Corn sidedress N.
