Soil fertility: Start right to finish well with Field Crops Virtual Breakfast
Join us April 15, 2021, as Kurt Steinke shares nutrient management recommendations for the 2021 field crops season.
With the 2021 growing season already beginning in some parts of Michigan, it’s not too late to still think about getting plants off to a great start and which strategies may better carry your fields through to harvest. From nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to soil pH, micronutrients and soil sampling, each of these factors can be just as impactful as the next and should be considered on an annual basis. Whether greater grain yield or return on investment is your top priority, a sound nutrient management program can be a wise investment. Join us April 15, 2021, on the free Field Crops Virtual Breakfast as Kurt Steinke shares nutrient management recommendations for the 2021 field crops season.
The Michigan State University Extension Field Crops Virtual Breakfast Series are held every week during the growing season via Zoom video or phone conference. These virtual meetings will take place every Thursday morning from 7-8 a.m. April 1 through Sept. 23, 2021. Restricted use pesticide (RUP) credits and Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) CEUs are available for attendees who attend the live meeting.
Participating is easy and free! You can join the live meeting via Zoom using a computer, tablet, mobile device or regular phone line. If you are new to Zoom, simply download the Zoom app and you will be ready to join online every week to see visuals shared by presenters. A call-in by phone option is also available but note that you will only hear the audio portion.
Participants must sign up to receive an email notification with instructions for joining the Virtual Breakfast. You only need to do this once and you will receive the Zoom link and call-in phone number, as well as weekly reminders every Wednesday. Participants receiving emails can opt in or out at any time.
If you cannot participate in the live session at 7 a.m., you can view the recorded version at any time. However, only the live session will be eligible for RUP and CCA credits. Recordings will be closed-captioned and available at the Field Crops Virtual Breakfast webpage and the MSU Extension Field Crops Team social media platforms: Facebook, Spotify, YouTube, Apple Podcasts and Twitter.
