2010 Illinois Crop Management Conferences to Address Critical Issues

The latest research information on critical crop production issues will be presented at four University of Illinois Regional Crop Management Conferences this winter. These two-day conferences are designed to address a wide array of hot topics pertinent to crop production, soil and water, soil fertility, and pest management. The goal is to provide a forum for in-depth discussion and interaction among participants and university specialists.

Certified Crop Advisers can earn up to 13 hours of CEU credit. Complete program agendas and online registration will be available in early December. Advance registration, no later than one week before each conference, is $130. Late and on-site registration is $150. There is no one-day option.
