The Spring 2020 MSU Tree Fruit Webinar Series is underway, and recordings of past presentations are available on the Michigan State University Extension fruit team’s YouTube Channel, MSU Fruit. Our team is recording the webinar series and posting videos temporarily on the MSU Fruit YouTube channel for those who were not able make it to the live meeting. Recorded webinars will be posted within 24 hours of the live session.
We were pleased to kick off the series with MSU climatologist Jeff Andresen, who provided an outlook for the spring season in Michigan. MSU Enviroweather coordinator Keith Mason also presented updates to the Enviroweather system and demonstrated features about the upgraded website. The site is currently under construction but we will provide information of its availability as soon as we have it. The old site will continue to function normally until the site is available. The recording of yesterday’s presentation, Weather Predictions and Enviroweather Update, is now available on MSU Fruit.
The Spring 2020 MSU Tree Fruit Webinar Series is held Monday through Friday from 12-1 p.m. EST through April 24. If you haven’t signed up for the series, there is still space left and an excellent line up of topics and presenters (see agenda below). Keep in mind that registration closes the day before the webinar will be offered, so sign up as soon as you can for the session(s) you would like to attend.
