BROOKINGS, S.D. — SDSU Extension will once again, deliver a series of virtual Crop Hour webinars this winter. Starting Jan. 24, every Tuesday through Thursday from 10 to 11 a.m. CST, participants are invited to take their coffee break with us online to get up to date on the latest in crop management and agronomic research from SDSU Extension.
“This online program will be offered to anyone interested; participants will have the opportunity to take in as many as 18 different sessions to hear about current crop production topics and issues, and learn from last year’s research while making plans for next year.” says Sara Bauder, SDSU Extension Forage Field Specialist.
Crop Hour will open with the first week’s presentations dedicated to the management of corn (pest management, hybrid information, soil fertility and more). The following weeks will cover a different area of agronomic production, from soybeans and small grains to cover crops and climate. The webinar series will conclude March 2.
“SDSU Extension is looking out for your farm’s profitability through an unbiased agronomic approach; join the webinar to learn how regenerative soil management can be used on your farm to reduce stress and crop input costs” says Anthony Bly, SDSU Soils Field Specialist. These webinars are designed to provide valuable information to producers, crop advisors, and agribusiness people to improve efficiency and profitability within their businesses.
