Last Issue of Weekly Crop Update for 2017

This is the last issue of Weekly Crop Update for the 2017 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. New regular contributors to WCU brought new ideas and features to WCU this year. We also say farewell to Nathan Kleczewski, who has taken a faculty position at University of Illinois. Thank you, Nathan for the many great articles over the past several years. If there were WCU articles that you found particularly useful I hope you will let the writer know.

My thanks as well to our office staff at the REC, who make sure the WCU gets to our fax and mail subscribers. Finally, I am very grateful to Don Seifrit for the help he has given me with the blog version of WCU this year.

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
