January Research Updates for Ag Professionals

2015 dates announced!

Face the new crop year armed with the latest University of Minnesota research

Each year brings new crop production challenges. As an agricultural professional, keeping up with these new issues is a top priority. You will find research-based strategies to deal with today’s changing pests, diseases, varieties, and nutrient and environmental recommendations.

You will leave with research-based knowledge and field-tested solutions that will help you in the field for the upcoming year.

Bring your questions and concerns

Presentations and discussions will allow you to visit with experienced university researchers. You will also have the opportunity to visit with colleagues to discuss topics of interest to you in your region.

Certified Crop Advisors are encouraged to bring their CCA identification card which contains the magnetic strip, as we will be using the new card reader for CEU sign-up. We will still have available a paper sign-up form as back-up.
