Fifth Annual Conference Offers Free Registration for 4-Week Series
June 20, 2022 – The American Society of Agronomy will host the 5e Annual Conference on Sustainable Agronomy in a series of virtual events. Thanks to our generous sponsors, this series is free for all participants!
The conference consists of sessions over four weeks starting July 19e, with one two-hour session per week. This conference offers CCAs and agricultural sales professionals the opportunity to learn about the latest sustainable agronomic practices and principles in the field. The mission of the conference is to provide education in an unbiased, science-based manner.
Topics will include:
July 19: Using precision agriculture for sustainable crop management
July 26: Improving sustainability through research and on-farm measurements
August 2: Improving Soil Health with 4R Nutrient Management
August 9: Exploring the present and future of carbon markets and ecosystem services
Unlike other sustainability or agronomy conferences that outline broad research findings, this conference will be action-oriented, practical, interactive and applied with an emphasis on decision support and execution.
“For me, the word ‘sustainable’ means the power to remain effective. In agriculture, we need to know or learn how to adjust management decisions that will provide consumers with products they find beneficial,” says Traci Bultemeier, current chair of the International Certified Crop Adviser Board. “These decisions must also bring economic benefits to the producer while preserving or improving the environment around us.”
Bultemeier emphasizes that sustainable agriculture has many moving and complex parts, and that it’s important to maintain fundamental practices while exploring all that the future of production agriculture has to offer. “I believe the speakers and content at the 2022 Sustainable Agronomy Conference will offer many challenging insights followed by research that begins to answer questions about the economics, implementation and acceptance of new ideas.”
