LAMBERTON, Minn. — The University of Minnesota Southwest Research and Outreach Center is proud to launch a new educational series in 2021. The Advancing Ag series provides opportunities for crop producers, ag professionals, and others engaged in the agriculture industry to hear from and engage in a dialogue with University of Minnesota researchers and other specialists.
Each Advancing Ag event will bring together a diverse panel of researchers and ag specialists who will address a crop production topic from multiple disciplines. Panelists will briefly share their input on the topic and then engage in a dialogue with event participants.
The kickoff Advancing Ag event will take place virtually on Wednesday, January 27th from 11 am to 12 pm. IPM Specialist Bruce Potter will lead a panel discussion and question and answer session on soybean pest management pre-plant decisions – how to balance host plant resistance, chemical decisions and risk. Panelists include:
Aaron Lorenz, UMN Associate Professor, soybean breeding
Bob Koch, UMN Associate Professor and Extension Entomologist
Jim Kurle, UMN Associate Professor, soybean pathology
Dean Malvick, UMN Professor and Extension plant pathologist
Seth Naeve, UMN Associate Professor and Extension Agronomist
To register for this webinar, visit z.umn.edu/advancing-ag. Participants are encouraged to submit questions for the panelists ahead of time or to come to the webinar with questions in mind.
Advancing Ag events will be held virtually on the fourth Wednesday of every month. These webinars are free to attend but participants must pre-register. Each session will be recorded and posted on YouTube at a later date. Certified crop advisors can self-apply for CEUs participating in each session.
