Do you know an experienced Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) who has a passion for soybean management? Nominate him or her for the annual Soybean Master Adviser award, presented by the Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) checkoff program. The award is part of ISA’s effort to recognize CCAs for their contribution to soybean production in Illinois. This is the second year the award has been given. CCA Kris Ehlers with Ehler Bros. was the first recipient.
Interested Illinois CCAs whose certification is active, and involved in soybean management can be nominated. The award will be presented to the winning CCA at the ILSoyAdvisor Soybean Summit in Springfield, Ill. on January 11, 2018.
ISA partners with the Illinois CCA program to recruit CCAs to serve as CCA Soy Envoys. Envoys contribute local and timely content focused on soybean management to ILSoyAdvisor.com, ISA’s agronomic website. ISA is also leading efforts to expand opportunities for CCAs to improve their soybean management knowledge and skills. ISA wants the Illinois CCAs to be the most knowledge soybean advisers in the U.S.
To nominate a CCA for this award please complete the nomination form, provide a few examples of their work and explain why they deserve the award. The Soybean Master Adviser award winner will be selected by a panel of ISA board members, Illinois CCA board members and university professionals. Nominations are open until December 10, 2017.
