Virtual Hop IPM Meetings

As part of our New York Farm Viability Institute grant Hops IPM from Greenhouse to Field we are starting biweekly meetings to discuss what is currently happening in hop yards across the state.  We are using Zoom, a distance learning software that will allow you to enter the meeting room using your computer.  There will be no formal agenda other than an update on what IPM practices should be on your radar and then the meeting will be opened up for questions and answers.  These meetings will be a great opportunity to hear about what is happening across the state (depending on who all participate) as well as interact with extension staff and fellow growers.  If you are interested and would like to attend please login using the connection information for the appropriate date and time found below.  We have scheduled the meetings during the lunch hour so you can multitask and participate while you eat. And the best part is you can click in and out at any time.  We will be recording the sessions so if you find you are running out of time you can type in a question and come back to the recording to hear the answer at your convenience.  If you have any questions, please contact Tim Weigle at thw4@cornell.edu.

You can join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android:
