Events & Programs

As farm businesses continue to consolidate and become more complex, their management needs and challenges increase. The center designs, develops, and delivers educational programming and events to assist commercial operations in building their management systems and skill sets. The educational offerings range from topical conferences to in-depth, discipline-based educational programs. These events include several long-standing, traditional programs such as the Purdue Top Farmer Crop Workshop and Purdue Farm Management Tour. Additionally, the center is working to develop new, innovative programs that meet the evolving needs of today's commercial farms. The center also has the flexibility to customize educational programming to meet specific educational goals and objectives of sponsoring organizations.
