Progressive Crop Consultant Magazine’s popular two-day Crop Consultant Conference will return this year as a live conference and trade show, featuring seminars worth 10 hours of CCA and 8 hours of DPR continuing education credits, a live trade show, and the presentation of Western Region CCA Association’s popular CCA of the Year Award and honorariums and scholarships. The Crop Consultant Conference will be held on Sept. 16 and 17 at the Visalia Convention Center.
The Crop Consultant Conference has become a premier event held in the San Joaquin Valley each September for Pest Control Advisors and Certified Crop Advisers. Co-hosted by JCS Marketing, the publisher of Progressive Crop Consultant Magazine, and Western Region Certified Crop Advisers Association, the event brings industry experts and suppliers, researchers and crop consultants together for two days of education, networking and entertainment.
“We are excited to be back to doing our events in person, and expect another sell-out event for crop consultants in the Western United States,” said JCS Marketing Publisher and CEO Jason Scott. “Agriculture is a relationship-driven business and there is no substitute for live events.”
Topics for the two days of seminars include: Various seminars on managing pests and diseases in high-value specialty crops, tank mix safety and regulations, fertilizer management, soil health, new technology, new varieties and rootstocks and their impact on tree nut pest management.
The conference will conclude with two one-hour panels offering hard-to-get CCA credits and moderated by Western Region CCA related to nitrogen monitoring, use, application and management as well as the various regulatory requirements around irrigated nitrogen management.
Registration fees for the two-day event are $150, or less than $15 per CE unit. Pre-registration is required and can be done at progressivecrop.com/conference.
