Description

A statewide conference for Certified Crop Advisers and other agriculture professionals will highlight the 2012 drought and its implications for the 2013 growing season. The Indiana Certified Crop Adviser Conference will be Dec. 18 and 19 at the Indianapolis Marriott East, 7202 E. 21st St., Indianapolis. It will include speakers from 10 states, including nine Purdue Extension educators, on topics spanning nutrient, soil and water, pest, and crop management. The conference's first day will be devoted primarily to drought-related topics, such as agronomic and meteorological recaps of 2011 and 2012, soil fertility updates, refuge strategies, and climate-resilient crops. The second day will include sessions on tools and techniques such as vertical tillage, equipment selection for precision farming, crop models and ear mold management. The conference is geared toward CCAs, but registration is open to farmers, Extension educators, graduate students and agriculture retailers. Registration is due before Dec. 12. Participants can register online at http://www.indianacca.org/registration/3/step/0/. Cost for CCAs is $195 for both days, $100 for one day; cost for non-CCAs is $300 for both days or $150 for one day. for more information, contact Lisa Green at 765-494-4783, or view the conference brochure at http://www.indianacca.org/media/INCCA_4panel_forWeb.pdf.
