2:00 pm EDT

Please use follow the 'location' link above to register for this webinar.

This webinar is part of the 2019 series of Advanced Training Webinars for Master Gardeners sponsored by Oregon State University Extension.

Lauri Lutes, a PhD Candidate in OSU’s Department of Botany and Plant Pathology, has spent the past several years studying viruses and their diseases in Oregon. From pre-planting to long-term care, Lauri will review the basics of viral disease prevention and management for your backyard cherries, including topics on: choosing the best tree, common virus symptom identification, and virus vector (insect and nematode) management.

To wrap things up, Lauri will discuss her experience as a co-host of KBVR’s radio show, Inspiration Dissemination, where she interviews graduate students across campus about their research and journey to graduate school.

Watershed Nutrient Inventories - Opportunities and Needs

2:30 pm EDT

Nutrient inventories and budgets are valuable tools that can guide decisions for both voluntary and mandatory nutrient management practices from farm to regional scale. Nutrient inventories of various scales provide different perspectives, and there are tradeoffs between scope and detail. This webinar will focus on nitrogen and phosphorus inventories at two watershed scales, and how manure nutrients are incorporated. The webinar will also discuss opportunities to continually improve both the calculation methods and application of the results.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.
Presenters for this webinar include:
  • Erin Cortus, University of Minnesota
  • Dr. Robert Sabo, US EPA
  • Dr. Mahmoud Sharara, North Carolina State University
Handouts (PDF format) will be available the day of the webinar at the live webinar information page.

Find out more about this webinar or future webinars by the Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Community (LPELC).
