NDSU Webinar to Analyze Winter Wheat Survival

The webinar will help growers and agronomists analyze a crop’s winter health and offer tips for spring management.

With the extremely dry August and September last year, growers are concerned about the lack of winter wheat plant development prior to dormancy and whether their crops will survive.

A webinar sponsored by North Dakota State University and Winter Cereals: Sustainability in Action will help growers and agronomists analyze a crop’s winter health and offer tips for spring management.

Participants also will learn the latest about winter wheat production during the free webinar, which starts at 9 a.m. on March 26. Production topics include stand evaluation, fertility management, winter annual weed identification and control, and disease management.

To participate, log onto http://ndivnlc.wimba.com/ anytime before the conference and run the setup wizard. About 15 minutes before the conference, participants can log onto the same site and click ""Participant Login.” The room identification is NDSU_Ag. Once logged in, select “NDSU Crop Calls” to join the meeting.

For more information or help with online access, contact Scott Swanson at s.swanson@ndsu.edu or (701) 231-7086.

Continuing education credits will be available. Certified crop advisers (CCA) may register for a one-half credit crop management continuing education unit (CEU) and a one-half credit nutrient management CEU by including their name and CCA number when they log into the class. Crop advisers will be able to sign up for the credit during the class.

One webinar registrant will receive some gifts at the end of the seminar. The winner must be online at the time of the drawing.

The webinar is part of the Winter Cereals: Sustainability in Action initiative, which is a collaboration by Ducks Unlimited, Bayer CropScience, Winfield Solutions, NDSU and other regional universities.

For more information on the webinar, contact Blake Vander Vorst at (701) 355-3500.
