2021 Hop Chat

Michigan State University Extension will host a series of interactive Hop Chat Zoom meetings this 2021 season to allow easy communication between producers and MSU faculty. These informal weekly sessions will include crop and pest updates from MSU Extension’s Rob Sirrine and Erin Lizotte. In addition, MSU faculty will drop in to address timely issues and provide research project updates. Bring your field notes too! We want to hear what’s going on in your hopyard. 

These Tuesday sessions will begin on May 4 and run weekly through Sept. 7, 2021 at 12 p.m. ET. Registration is free but required. Sessions will not be recorded. You will receive a Zoom link to join the meeting in your confirmation email. That Zoom link will be used for each meeting. Register now!
