In agriculture, things change fast, and growers need on-time, on-task and on-target weather, crop and pest information. To meet this need, the Michigan State University Extension field crops team will again hold free Virtual Breakfasts every week during the growing season via Zoom video or phone conference. These virtual meetings will take place every Thursday morning from 7-7:30 a.m. starting April 25 through Sept. 5, 2019.
Each live session will provide timely crop management topics with recommendations or late-breaking pest observations from an MSU specialist. A weekly weather outlook will also be provided by MSU’s agricultural climatologist Jeff Andresen. See the full schedule below. Participants will also be able to ask questions during the live meetings.
You can join using your computer or mobile device (audio and visual) following the Zoom link: https://msu.zoom.us/j/552324349. Or, call in from your phone (audio only) by dialing 669-900-6833 and enter meeting ID 552-324-349.
To receive a weekly email reminder of the Virtual Breakfast, sign up at http://eepurl.com/gm-PIv. Participants receiving emails can opt in or out at any time.
For those who cannot join on Thursdays at 7 a.m., the Virtual Breakfast sessions will be recorded for later viewing with closed-captioning on the Field Crops Virtual Breakfast webpage. Podcasts will also be available.
Note that these may change to cover breaking pest and weather situations.
