The first year of the Virtual Crop Scouting School was a huge international success! Over 620 people registered from 34 US states and 20 different countries. All together, participants spent 336 hours watching the training videos. The most popular presentation was “General Scouting Tips and Safety,” by Mikaela Breunig. Organized by the Crop Protection Network, this free Virtual School included 22 webinars that featured crop protection specialists at 11 Midwest universities. Participants registered online and were able to choose webinars and watch at their convenience.
