2005 Crop Protection Technology Conference--Don't Forget to Register

On behalf of the planning committee for the 57th annual Illinois Crop Protection Technology Conference (University of Illinois, Illini Union, Urbana, January 5 and 6), I extend our invitation to those in the crop production and protection arenas to take part in this annual conference. We are very pleased with the number of registrations received thus far. This conference continues to grow in popularity because of the flexibility of the format and the chance for attendees to interact with crop production experts across the Corn Belt. Participants have the ability to tailor their own programs and select from among 65 hours of Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) continuing education credits (41 credits in IPM, 6 credits in soil and water, 13 credits in crop production, 2 credits in crop management, and 3 credits in nutrient management). By attending the keynote session and selecting the symposia and specialized sessions of most interest, participants can earn up to 10 CCA credits.
