Registration open for Michigan State University Spring Tree Fruit Webinar Series

Due to ongoing restrictions based on current events, the Michigan State University Extension fruit team is once again offering its spring tree fruit educational programs through a series of live webinars.

These webinars are free and held on Zoom from 12-1 p.m., Monday through Friday, April 5-16. Live webinars will be recorded and posted online for viewing at a later date.

Registration is open and required to participate in the 2021 Statewide Spring Tree Fruit Webinar Series. MDARD pesticide applicator credits are available to registered participants that join the live webinars.

The registration page for the Spring 2021 Statewide Tree Fruit Webinar Series will direct you to a page where you will enter your name, location, contact information and affiliations. Click on the boxes next to each of the webinars you plan to attend. After completing this registration process, if you didn’t select a date but would like to attend that day’s webinar, you can click on the registration page again to sign up for that webinar. However, please note that registration for a specific webinar closes the day before that webinar will be offered.

What about credits?

Registered participants that attend the live webinar will be eligible to receive Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) Pesticide Applicator Certification credits; one credit per meeting will be available for a total of 10 credits possible. Each person that would like to receive credits must register through MSU. So grab your applicator number and don’t forget to enter it on the MSU registration form. To earn credits, you will also be prompted to enter your applicator number when you enter each Zoom webinar.

Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) credits will also be available by using a QR code at the end of each webinar. CCAs, please do not provide your CCA numbers on the registration form.

Please note that to receive credits, you must register and enter your contact information into Zoom on the day of the event. Registered participants will receive a webinar link via email on the morning of that day’s scheduled webinar, and Zoom will prompt you to enter your contact information. If you do not attend the live webinar, you will not be able to receive credits.
