Title: Building Environmental Resiliency through Soil Re-carbonization and Digital Agronomy.
This conference will provide Certified Crop Advisers (CCAs) and Agri-Sale Professionals with the opportunity to better understand and implement sustainable agronomy in the field by implementing soil carbon focused agronomy using the farmer’s cropping system.
Learn how observed climate data is telling a story for row crop farmers, some of the economic benefits related to soil carbon, agronomic system implications for the farmer, environmental benefits ultimately by developing soil carbon enriching row cropping systems. Economic, environmental, and social aspects of annual row crop farming is the agriculture space we will walk through together at the conference.

*CCA Continuing Education Units (CEUs): All sessions will be approved for Sustainability (SSp) CEUs. You will also notice a second category; for example, SSp or NM. SSp CEUs are board approved for all CCAs and count towards your overall total CEUs. You will have the option to request the second category if you are not currently certified as an SSp and you do not have the minimum required total in the second category. In order to do this, you will need to contact your representative in the ICCA office to request the change after CEUs are posted to your record.
