Save the dates for Crop Pest Management Connect

by Dave Nicolai, Institute for Ag Professionals Coordinator

Save the dates for University of Minnesota Extension’s Crop Pest Management (CPM) Connect, an online educational conference for ag professionals scheduled for December 8-10. It's being offered during the same timeframe as the previous in-person Crop Pest Management Short Course.

CPM Connect will continue the tradition of a strong educational program with a wealth of pest, crop and fertilizer management topics. Each session includes a short presentation followed by a live question and answer period so that participants can engage with academic experts from Minnesota and surrounding states. Presentations will be offered via Zoom each day from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm.

This conference will provide up to 12 Certified Crop Advisor continuing education units in the areas of soil & water, nutrient management, pest management and crop management over the 3-day period. There will be twenty-four agronomic update presentations covering corn (Dec. 8), soybeans (Dec. 9) and additional topics, such as alfalfa, tillage, weed science, cover crops, manure management along with new alternative cropping systems (Dec 10).

Watch for registration and additional information that will become available next week.
