2009 Illinois Crop Management Conferences to Address Critical Issues

The latest perspectives on critical crop production issues will be discussed at four University of Illinois Regional Crop Management Conferences this winter. These two-day conferences will address a wide array of hot topics pertinent to crop production, pest management, natural resources, and economic issues, and they provide a forum for in-depth discussion and interaction among participants and university specialists.

Each conference will combine general sessions with concurrent breakout sessions on current research affecting crop production and marketing.

Certified Crop Advisers can earn up to 13 hours of CEU credit. Advance registration, which ends one week before each conference, is $130 per person. Late and on-site registration are $150. The fee includes lunch, refreshments, and handouts for both days. There is no one-day registration option.
