Join us Wednesday, July 7 for Field Notes when we welcome Dr. Dean Malvick, Extension plant pathologist, and Dr. Angie Peltier, Extension Educator-crops in northwestern MN, to discuss crop pathogens. 

This is the time of year where growers may be considering fungicide options or if they are needed, especially as soybeans enter flowering stages when white mold infection may occur. With the dry conditions, fields with soybean cyst nematode may also be more noticeable than in previous years. Being in a drought does not mean diseases will entirely go away this year, so listen in to ask our experts any related questions you may have.

What is Field Notes?

The Field Notes program is designed for farmers and agricultural professionals as a weekly webinar program addressing all your crop-related questions in real-time in an interactive, discussion-based format.

The Field Notes program will run Wednesday mornings from 7:30-8:00 a.m. throughout the growing season. It features a live webinar with interactive discussions that address in-season cropping issues as they arise. Topics may include nutrient management, agronomics, pest management, equipment, and more.

Do you have questions or topics you would like addressed during Field Notes? Submit them in advance of the program through the Google Form or send to gople007@umn.edu. In addition you will have the opportunity to ask questions during the webinar program.
