2014 January Research Updates for Ag Professionals

| Leave a comment

By Dave Nicolai, Coordinator for the Institute for Ag Professionals

Face the 2014 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 2014 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 2014. Descriptions of the research update presentations can be viewed at the Institute for Ag Professionals web site.

CEU credits for Certified Crop Advisers

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

Download the new CCA app to record your CEUs easily at the Research Update sessions and other future meetings

CCAs--Do you have a smart phone? If so, the American Society of Agronomy has a new app which quickly and easily gets the CEUs from the research update sessions onto your CEU report. When you are at any meeting that has pre-approved CCA CEUs, you'll see a QR code on the sign-in sheet. Just launch the app, click on scan course code and scan the QR code with your mobile device. Review the instructions (87 K PDF) for downloading and using the app.

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, Extension Educators, Agriculture Government Agency Personnel, Farm Managers, and anyone else who would benefit from some professional training.
