Topic: Social Media - So What? Perspectives from Across Extension
Presenters: Todd Hurt, University of Georgia; Kevin Andrews, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Karen Jeanette, Military Families Learning Network, and Diane Mashburn, University of Arkansas.
Session Description: Social media platforms have been around for over a decade now, which gives us pause to consider what value do they bring to our organizations and are we effectively measuring their impact to Extension programming?
In this webinar, our team of presenters will discuss their institutions’ purpose in using social media, how social media conversations may be used to drive programming, and which metrics are worth collecting. They will also look at different reporting systems, tools to aid in data collection, and how public value can be discovered through social media engagement.

Downy mildew of cucumber, pumpkin and other cucurbits occurs annually in the Northeastern US causing severe losses in yield. This presentation will discuss when the pathogen first arrives in and area and how the pathogen spreads. Additionally, methods for controlling cucurbit downy mildew will be discussed including resistant varieties and cultural controls. Results from studies on the use and effectiveness of organically approved commercially available products for controlling downy mildew will also be presented.
This webinar was organized by members of the NIFA-OREI funded Eastern Sustainable Cucurbit Project, which is a collaboration of growers, researchers and extension agents working to find solutions for the many challenges facing organic cucurbit producers.
Christine Smart of the Department of Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology at Cornell University studies primarily bacterial and water mold pathogens of vegetables, working with growers to combine cultural practices and resistant varieties for disease control. She has been working at Cornell University’s New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva since 2003.
