Fifth annual conference offers free registration for the 4-week series
June 20, 2022 – The American Society of Agronomy will host the 5th Annual Sustainable Agronomy Conference in a virtual-event series. Thanks to our generous sponsors, this series is free to all attendees!
The conference consists of sessions over four weeks starting on July 19th, with one two-hour session held each week. This conference provides CCAs and Agri-Sales Professionals with the opportunity to learn about the latest in-field, sustainable agronomic practices and principles. The mission of the conference is to provide education in a science-based, unbiased way.
Topics will include:
July 19: Utilizing Precision Agriculture for Sustainable Crop Management
July 26: Enhancing Sustainability through On-farm Research and Metrics
August 2: Building Soil Health with 4R Nutrient Management
August 9: Exploring the Present and Future of Carbon and Ecosystem Services Markets
Unlike other sustainability or agronomy conferences that describe broad research findings, this conference will be action-oriented, practical, interactive, and applied with a focus on decision support and execution.
“The word ‘sustainable’ to me means the power to stay effective. In agriculture, we must know or learn how to adjust management decisions that will provide products to the consumer that they find beneficial,” says Traci Bultemeier, current chair of the International Certified Crop Adviser Board. “Those decisions also have to bring benefit to the producer economically while preserving or improving the environment around us.”
Bultemeier emphasizes that sustainable agriculture has many moving and intricate parts, and it is important to maintain fundamental practices while exploring all that the future of production agriculture has to offer. “I believe the speakers and the content of the 2022 Sustainable Agronomy Conference will offer many thought-provoking ideas followed up by research that begins to answer the questions around economics, implementation, and the acceptance of new ideas.”
