DISCOVERY PLOTS MOVE TO NEW FORMAT WITH COVID19 CONCERNS
Jul 27, 2020
Discovery Plot Days in their traditional format will not be part of the summer experience at Federated Co-ops in 2020. Unfortunately, due to Covid19 concerns over the health and safety of Federated staff and you, our customers, it is not possible to gather everyone under the tent or tour the fields.
But Discovery Plot Tours will go on – in a virtual environment! You can gather all the news and information from the Discovery Plot tours while sitting in the comfort of your living room. And, because the virtual presentations will include valuable insight from several plot locations, it will be like attending multiple tours across Federated’s service areas.
In late August and early September you will be able to take virtual plot tours that include a variety of video perspectives. You will see up close what’s happening in the fields.
“We are working on developing virtual plot days with our suppliers and sales staff,” said Kevin Carlson, Federated’s agronomy sales manager, and “we will be releasing information [about this process] as we go along.”
Federated Agronomists and sales reps from Legend®, Croplan®, Bayer®, Syngenta®, and Renk® will provide informative presentations on topics relevant to crop management and this year’s plots.
Watch for further news in upcoming editions of this Agronomy Update. A paper invitation is also being mailed via USPS. Discovery Plot tour video links will be delivered to you by email. Your Federated Agronomist will have more information as it becomes available.
