The Ag Masters Conference on December 7 takes a more in-depth look at agronomic topics. At the Ag Masters event attendees can choose from 3 to 4 different topics during seven sessions throughout the day. A dozen different speakers will be presenting on nitrogen issues, neonicotinoids, fungicide resistance, the use of sulfur, cover crops, drones and weed resistance. Complete agendas for each event are available at illinoiscca.org.

Attendees can register for either or both conferences online or at the door. There is a separate rate for Certified Crop Advisers and for individuals who are not certified and want to increase their agronomic knowledge.
