Box Blight Webinar - January 5, 2012 11 a.m. EST

On Thursday January 5th at 11 am EST, NC State University will be hosting an ELLUMINATE LIVE webinar on box blight. Box blight is a disease new to the US and was recently found on boxwood in North Carolina, Virginia, and Connecticut (and now a few additional states).

This webinar will be geared towards County Agents and boxwood growers in North Carolina and adjacent states, but all interested parties are invited. There is no limit on attendance, so anyone can watch the webinar LIVE!

Dr. Kelly Ivors, who first diagnosed box blight in the US, will speak for 45 minutes, followed by questions from the audience. The session is scheduled to last an hour and a half but will be extended if necessary.  Representatives from VA and other box blight positive states may make additional comments and address concerns in their states.

The webinar will be recorded and made available for viewing at any time after the webinar at the same URL given below.
