CAAR members may be interested in attending the US Sustainable Agronomy Conference designed for Certified Crop Advisers (CCAs), Agri-Sales Professionals, and growers which starts today, July 20, 2021.
The conference will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn more about sustainable agronomy in the field. Attendees will learn about what is driving sustainability agriculture, what the agronomics look like, and how to implement sustainable crop production.

The Sustainable Agronomy Conference will include a four-part virtual “Conservation in Action Tour”, which will include videos from the field which feature interviews with experts, as well as CCAs, researchers, and farmers.
