Each year brings new crop production challenges. As an agricultural professional, keeping up with these new issues is a top priority. At the 2010 Research Update, 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. Certified Crop Advisor 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.
