The dates and locations for the 2016 regional Crop Management Conferences are as follows:
January 20: Mt. Vernon – Krieger/Holiday Inn Convention Center.
January 27: Springfield – Northfield Inn Conference Center.
February 3: Champaign – i-Hotel and Conference Center.
February 10: Malta – Kishwaukee College Conference Center.
These conferences provide a forum for discussion and interaction between participants and university researchers and are designed to address a wide array of topics pertinent to crop production in Illinois: crop management, pest management, nutrient management, soil and water management.
At each location, conferences will be held from 8 AM to 5 PM, with a 1 hour break for lunch. Those that have attended in years past will recognize this as a major schedule change. Unfortunately, with the dwindling number of crop sciences faculty with extension responsibilities, we are unable to continue to offer 13 hours of education over 2 days.
Certified Crop Advisers can still earn up to 8 hours of continuing education credit.
Advanced registration, no later than one week before each conference, will cost $100 per person. Late and on-site registration will cost $120.
Stay tuned to the Bulletin for details regarding speakers and topics and for registration details.
