Last Weekly Issue of WCU for 2021

This is the last weekly issue of Weekly Crop Update for the 2021 season. I hope that this newsletter has been a useful resource to you as you dealt with the many challenges of this past growing season.

There will be a monthly update to the WCU Blog with notes, articles and announcements from October through February. Notification of the monthly updates will be sent to email subscribers.

My thanks to the Extension specialists and agents who have contributed articles this year — the WCU would certainly not be possible without them. If there were WCU articles that you found particularly useful this year I hope you will let the writer know. My thanks as well to Karen Adams, who gets WCU to mail subscribers and Katie Young who helped with posting the blog this year.

Best wishes for a safe and prosperous fall harvest season!

Kind regards,
Emmalea Ernest, editor of WCU
