In a normal year, we would spend this week finalizing preparations for the annual Mizzou Pest Management Field Day. COVID has prevented us from hosting the annual meeting, however, we still want to share current, relevant research and introduce the newest graduate students in the program. Therefore, we will launch a video series in the coming weeks. We aim to feature one 3- to 5-minute video per week, and will share the videos through the IPM newsletter and our social media sites: Facebook (Mizzou Weed Science) and Twitter (@ShowMeWeeds). Some topics we plan to highlight include:
This approach will not allow us to have the discussion that typically follows field day presentations; however, Facebook and Twitter provide a virtual place for viewers to leave questions pertaining to the videos. Hopefully, in 2021 we will be able to return to the standard format of meeting at Bradford Research Center and having in-person discussions.
