2010 January Research Updates for Ag Professionals

| Leave a comment

By David Nicolai, IAP Program Coordinator

Face the 2010 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. At the 2010 University of Minnesota Research Update for Ag Professionals, you will find research-based strategies to deal with today's changing pests, diseases, varieties, and nutrient and environmental recommendations. Presentations and discussions at the update will allow you to visit with experienced university researchers and offer you the opportunity to visit with colleagues to discuss topics of interest to you in your region. You will leave with research-based knowledge and field-tested solutions that will help you in the field for the year 2010.


 

CEU Credits for Certified Crop Advisors

Continuing education units for Certified Crop Advisors are given for the Research Updates. CEU credits which have been applied for at each location are; 1 in Nutrient Mgt and 3 in Pest Mgt with the exception of the Crookston location which will offer 1 in Nutrient Mgt, 3 in Pest Mgt and 1 in Crop Mgt. 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.

Who Should Attend?

Agronomists, Ag Salespeople (seeds, chemicals, fertilizers), Crop Consultants, Crop Production Specialists, Regional Extension Educators, Agriculture Government Agency Personnel, Farm Managers, and anyone else who would benefit from some professional training.
