Look What's New at PMN

Online Educational Webcasts


PMN has recently developed a new online seminar technology that allows presenters to include actual audio of their talks along with their slides. Three seminars are currently available that feature recognized experts speaking on aspects of soybean cyst nematode, corn rootworms, and Xylella diseases. Future seminars are in development and are intended to increase PMN’s educational benefit to subscribers. Seminars are available through the “Education Center” link under the “Resources” tab on the navigation bar below the PMN banner.

Cross-Journal Search
Try your hand at PMN's new Cross-Journal Search Engine. One user said, "Now PMN has something that I really, really will use regularly! I tried the search for applied journals and it’s great!” The search brings together an array of applied agricultural journals published by PMN's partners. It joins another PMN search engine for land-grant university extension publications. The Extension Publication Search is a cooperative effort of PMN and its 30 Land-Grant Partners. Both searches have links under the "Resources" tab on the navigation bar below the PMN banner.

Ball Mark Repair: The Videos


As an online only publisher, Plant Management Network has the capability of including video and other media in its peer-reviewed journals. A recent article in Applied Turfgrass Science has leveraged this ability by including five videos comparing ball mark repairs on golf course  greens.
