The second day of our webinar series attracted extension educators, researchers, policy makers and farmers. The session was anchored by a presentation from Ag Historian Nicole Welk-Joerger and followed by a discussion among three of NYFVI’s project leaders, Elson Shields, Brian Nault and Aaron Ristow.
Nicole Welk-Joerger’s presentation emphasized how an understanding of history can help all stakeholders move forward with intentionality. She discussed how each stakeholder audience has a hierarchy of priorities, and a need to balance risks. A brief overview of some key points in the development of the pesticide industry was included. Panel discussion followed, as well as a few moments at the end for an audience Q&A.
