Ag Chemicals Conference Proceedings Now Live on PMN
Audio-visual webcasts of the 64th Annual West Texas Ag Chemicals Institute Conference held in Lubbock, Texas, on September 13, 2016, are now available on PMN thanks to the support of Cotton Incorporated. Seven talks and two panel discussions representing nearly five hours of footage were produced, covering policy and regulation updates, legal issues, pest management, and unmanned aerial vehicles.
View these proceedings in PMN’s Focus on Cotton resource.

Don’t Miss our First Apple Webcast
Our first webcast on fire blight and streptomycin resistance was recently produced for the benefit of owners of apple orchards and pesticide applicators and consultants who serve them.  
View this expertly produced webcast by Dr. Quan Zeng of the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, who produced this talk to help satisfy the outreach component of a grant.  Applying for a grant? Contact Phil Bogdan at to learn how PMN can help support your grant-funded outreach work.
