Still time to register for the Advanced Crop Advisors Workshop

Many farmers work with a crop advisor who works either independently or for an ag service provider. During winter, it isn't only farmers that spend time learning about all of the latest research results to improve crop yields and quality and farm profitability. The crop advisors that work with and for farmers also spend their winters learning about how best to assist the farmers that they work with to improve their crops' yield and quality and improve overall farm productivity. 

The Advanced Crop Advisors Workshop provides value

The Advanced Crop Advisors Workshop is one key learning opportunity geared specifically toward crop advisors each winter meetings season. One key to setting a speaker and topic lineup of value to crop advisors is including crop advisors in the process; several crop advisors serve on the workshop planning committee.

Crops experts from universities in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin will interact with workshop participants regarding a dozen crop production topics at the 2024 workshop.
