Last Issue of Weekly Crop Update for 2016 and Farewell to Two Longtime Contributors

This is the last issue of Weekly Crop Update for the 2016 season. I hope that this newsletter has been a useful resource to you as you dealt with the challenges of this past growing season. My thanks to the Extension specialists and agents who have contributed articles this year — the WCU would obviously not be possible without them. My thanks as well to our office staff at the REC, who make sure the WCU gets to our fax and mail subscribers.

Best wishes and many thanks to Richard Taylor, who retired in June, for many years of informative, detailed articles on agronomic crop management.  Farewell, also to Joanne Whalen, who will retire later this fall. Next year’s WCU will not be the same without you!

Best wishes for a safe and prosperous fall harvest season. I look forward to seeing many of you at meetings this winter.

Kind regards,
Emmalea Ernest
