Boxwood Blight webinar Jan 5

See the message below from Dr. Kelly Ivors at NC State: 

On Thursday January 5th at 11 am EST, NC State University will be hosting an ELLUMINATE LIVE webinar on box blight- a new disease to the US recently found on boxwood in North Carolina, Virginia, and Connecticut.

This webinar will be geared towards agents and boxwood growers in North Carolina and adjacent states, but I am also inviting interested parties from any other state, especially those that produce boxwood, to participate.

There is no limit on attendence, so anyone can watch the webinar LIVE!

This ELLUMINATE session will also be the re-start of our regional SE ornamental / floriculture IPM webinar series, which will continue on a monthly basis in 2012.

I will speak for 45 minues on this new boxwood disease in the U.S., followed by questions from the audience- that means the session could go until about

12:30 pm EST or later if there are a bunch of questions. I am hoping to have representatives from both VA and CT as well and give them time to make additional comments and address concerns in their states.

We will record the webinar during the live session; it will be made available for viewing at anytime after the webinar at the same URL pasted below.

Here's how to participate in the webinar:

Before the webinar, click on the link below.

You will be able to enter the session starting at 10 am EST on the day it occurs (for trouble shooting if necessary), but the actual webinar will not start until 11 am EST.

All that you need is an up-to-date browser and internet connection. We will run the webinar off of NC State's ELLUMINATE site licence, so you don't need a copy of the program yourself. In order to test that your system requirements are acceptable, visit the Configuration Room linked on

In addition, Elluminate tips can be found at the link below.

Looking forward to the webinar, and getting the information out!
