Feb 12, 2021

Several Crop Protection Network webinars are scheduled for this spring. Some of the best minds in agriculture will talk about ways to keep soybeans healthy.

Martin Chilvers, Michigan State University associate professor of plant pathology; Carl Bradley, University of Kentucky extension professor of plant pathology; and Trey Price LSU AgCenter associate professor of plant pathology will give talks in February, March and April.

“These webinars are coming out at a great time for crop consultants and farmers to get this information,” said Kiersten Wise, University of Kentucky plant pathology professor and co-director of CPN. “People all over North America will get a chance to hear from experts on the latest research on managing soybean diseases.”

These free webinars are scheduled for 2 p.m. Eastern and 1 p.m. Central time. CPN will host the webinars through the Southern Region IPM Center. Pre-registration for each webinar is required.
