Given COVID-19, Eugenia Banks, potato specialist with the Ontario Potato Board, is bringing her annual training day online to a live webinar series to ensure scouts and growers are prepared for the 2020 growing season.

The free three-part webinar series discussing the common diseases, insects and physiological disorders affecting potatoes during the growing season is now available as recorded sessions. Registrants will be asked to re-enter their emails to ensure data collected follows CCA-CEU standards for tracking.

These sessions are approved for three CCA-CEU credits: two in integrated pest management and one in crop management.
