July 26, 2012  


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Indiana Certified Crop Advisers can receive up-to-date information on current topics in agronomy and earn continuing education credit at the Indiana Certified Crop Adviser Days in August.

One-day workshops will be held Aug. 7 at the Purdue University SWPAC Diagnostic Training and Research Center, 4669 North Purdue Road, Vincennes, and Aug. 8 and 9 at the Purdue Crop Diagnostic Training and Research Center, 4540 U.S. 52 W, West Lafayette.

Speakers include Purdue agronomy professors Bob Nielsen, Shaun Casteel and Jim Camberato, cover crops experts Mike Plumer and Barry Fisher, Knox County Extension educator Valerie Clingerman, and University of Wisconsin weed specialist Vince Davis.

“The CCA Days are a great place for hands-on learning and a great opportunity to interact with other CCAs,” said Corey Gerber, director of the Purdue Crop Diagnostic Training and Research Center. “The sessions will provide timely information on current agronomic issues and discussions on how to remedy these issues. We want our participants to obtain the information that they need to educate producers and others in the agricultural sector.”

Registration forms and information have been sent to Indiana CCAs. They should be mailed back to or emailed to Lisa Green, who can be reached at 765-494-4783 or lgreen06@purdue.edu. Registration is limited to 60 participants per day. Fees are $55 per person for Indiana CCAs and $110 per person for non-Indiana CCA members. Registration fee includes lunch, refreshments and educational materials.

Attendance at the workshop is worth one continuing education unit each in nutrient management, soil and water management, and pest management; it is worth three units in crop management.
