New Crop Talk webinar series for northwest and north central Kansas



A new series of hour-long webinars began in early February. This series is focused on agronomic topics targeted for northwest and north central Kansas. Topics range from soil fertility, weed management, insect management, and dryland corn dynamics. Continuing education credits have been applied for and will vary based on the subject area of each webinar. Each webinar will begin at 10:30 am (CST) and last until 11:30 am, beginning with the first one on Tuesday, February 2.

Upon registration, participants will receive an email with instructions to attend via Zoom or YouTube. These webinars are open to all and there is no cost. Visit the K-State Northwest Research and Extension Center’s website to register: https://www.northwest.k-state.edu/events/crop-talk-series.
