Field crop producers and agribusiness professionals who are unable to attend Michigan State University Extension’s traditional winter programs will once again be able to access the expertise of MSU specialists and educators from the comfort of their home or office. The 2019 Field Crops Webinar Series will include a selection of topics that will be presented at both the Field Crops Pest Management Update and the Field Crop Production Update series.

The live webinars will run on Monday evenings from 7 to 8 p.m. EST beginning Feb. 18 through April 1, 2019. Topics will include:

Those attending the live webinars will be eligible to earn one MDARD Pesticide Recertification (RUP) credit per session for application to one of the following categories: Private Core, Commercial Core or Field Crops. Each webinar will also be recorded and archived, and participants may choose to view the recordings at a later date.
