The live, online meetings will run 6:30–7 a.m. every Thursday from April 26 to June 21, and every other Thursday from July 12 to Aug. 30, 2018 (see full list of dates below). Participants can join using their computer, mobile device or regular phone line. Follow the Zoom link at to join online, or call in by dialing 669-900-6833, Meeting ID: 552-324-349.

If you can’t join at 6:30 a.m. on Thursdays, the presentations will be recorded and made available through the MSU Extension Field Crops website for on-demand access.
