The Indiana Certified Crop Advisor conference, will take place Dec. 20-21, in Indianapolis. The two-day conference will focus on global food security and recent declining crop yield trends.

With a growing global population, and one that is increasingly upgrading their diets, agriculture will face growing pressure to meet food needs. Add to that the long-term limitations to productive cropland and water supply as well as shifting climate and growing cycles, and there are many challenges that lie ahead to increase crop yields.

Taking place at Indianapolis’ Marriott East Hotel, the meeting will feature 35 presenters, the majority of whom come from outside of Indiana.

Presentations will range from crop management to choosing the right precision ag equipment, tools and technology to drainage control to fertilizer and manure application options and much more. Research on a variety of topics also will be presented.

As U.S. agriculture works to provide global food security and this conference will provide guidance on how producers can maximize their management systems and strategies.

The conference is open to anyone; the registration fee is $195 for CCA members and $300 for non-members. More information is available here
