Local AgriLife Extension Offices will host a virtual AgriLife Crop Production and Protection Seminar on Dec. 20. The deadline to RSVP to attend is Dec. 5.  

The cost is $25. Those interested should call their local extension office in Dimmitt, Muleshoe or Bovina.  

The seminar will provide CEU opportunities – the last available before the year is over.  

Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. followed by the first workshop called “Laws and Rgulations/TDA guidelines for licensing,” presented by Mark Matocha. 

The next presentation will be “What goes into selecting a variety?” That topic will be presented by both Craig Bednarz and Calvin Trostle at 10 a.m.  

“How reliable are insect technologies? Efficacy & economic thresholds” will be presented by David Kerns, Blayne Reed and Pat Porter at 11 a.m.  

There will be a 15-minute break at noon.  

The seminar will pick back up at 12:15 p.m. with “Plant Health and Protection Decisions related to Disease, Viruses & Nematodes,” presented by Terry Wheeler, Thomas Isakeit and Ken Obasa.  

Peter Dotray will present “Management of Resistant Weeds and New Technologies” at 1:15 p.m. to wrap up the day.  

This presentation will be virtual but it’s open to all counties across the Panhandle and South Plains.  

CEUs available include 1 L&R, 2 IPM, 1 Drift and 1 General.
