Calling all agronomists, Certified Crop Advisers, custom applicators and farmers! Last reminder - registration is now open for the 2019 FSR Agronomy College, a partnership event between the Ohio AgriBusiness Association and Ohio State University Extension.
Held September 10 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, Ohio, the FSR Agronomy College provides participants with up-to-date knowledge on current agronomy issues through a variety of breakout sessions. This year, topics will the challenges of the 2019 growing season and the opportunities moving into 2020 and beyond.
Featured speakers include Fred Whitford of Purdue University; Pierce Paul, Tony Dobbels, Kelley Tilmon, Anne Dorrance and Alex Lindsey of The Ohio State University.
Registration is $120 per participant. More information and registration is available at oaba.net/events.
Also at the Farm Science Review on September 17, 18 and 19 will be several programs that include Certified Crop Adviser CEUs. Continuing education is an important part of what makes a CCA so valuable to their clients. At FSR this year we have credits available in the Agronomy plots on the east end of the grounds, at the Small Farm Center on the west side of the exhibit area and north on SR 38 at the Gwynne Conservation area. All credits are included in the admission price to enter the grounds – you just have to sit, learn and then sign-in to get them.
See the FSR educational events page for CCA CEUs in the Agronomy area and in the Small Farm area: https://fsr.osu.edu/sites/fsr/files/imce/pages8-12.pdf; and at the Gwynne: https://fsr.osu.edu/sites/fsr/files/imce/FSR-2019-Program-Gwynne-AUG8.pdf. I know the credits are not specified for the Small Farms Center, but you know what to look for.
