Winter OSU Seed and Cereal Crop Grower Meetings

We are preparing for our next round of OSU Extension Seed and Cereal Crop grower meetings, which usually happen in early January. As a result of current COVID-19 restrictions, we will again be hosting these Winter meetings in a virtual webinar format. This will be very similar to way that the Fall grower meetings were organized. While this is not our ideal scenario, we are striving to continue to provide growers and industry reps with up-to-date recommendations and research updates. Presentation topics will be focused on production issues that are important to consider as we head into late winter and spring management season. Instead of a ½ day in-person meeting, we have broken the content into three 1.5 hour webinars.

Webinar #1 – Spring Weed Management (January 6, 8:30 am)

Webinar #2 – Insect, Fertility, and PGR Research Updates (January 7, 8:30 am)

Webinar #3 – Clover Seed Research Updates (February 3, 8:30 am)

There will be 1 ODA pesticide recertification credit offered with each webinar. Participation is FREE but each participant must pre-register to be eligible to earn a pesticide credit.

Registration links and other detailed information can be found in the flyer. We do anticipate recording the webinars and providing links for later viewing (later viewing will not qualify for pesticide credits). Downloading the free Zoom app onto your computer or mobile device is highly recommended.

If you have any questions about the webinars, how to register, earning pesticide credits, etc., please contact Betsy Verhoeven @ 503-779-8217 or Nicole Anderson @ 503-553-9922.

Agricultural Wildfire Webinars

OSU Extension in Sherman/Wasco Counties have several online opportunities regarding fire season.

  • Free online Agricultural Wildfire Course The course is online HERE
  • Recorded webinar, here.

A certificate is available upon course completion. The course covers how to develop emergency action plans, powerline and fireline safety, defensible space, fire control, and fire behavior. This course provides training that meets that of an annual Ag Wildfire refresher, which is a new Oregon OSHA requirement. Even if you do not have employees this course covers good material for living and working in rural eastern Oregon.
