Improving Field Crop Extension outreach through enhanced growing season communication and outreach
Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) educators are Cornell University’s front line in helping New York field crop producer clientele with crop production and pest management issues. Keeping CCE personnel informed on the latest information and developments helps us meet Cornell’s high standards for extension outreach and provides clientele with quality, pertinent, timely and user-friendly programs and resources that maximize our educational impacts. Enhancing communication opportunities between CCE county and campus personnel helps strengthen the outreach network, and is an important component of CCE’s professional development. 2017 marked the 10th year of the call series. This season twenty-two conference calls were held between 5/4/17 and 9/28/17 to improve campus and field staff communication regarding field crop pest and crop management issues during the growing season.
