9:00 am – 4:30 pm

There are 5 CEUs available for Crops Day: Soil and Water - 1 CEU, Professional Management - .5 CEU, Crop Management - 2 CEUs, Professional Development - 1.5 CEUs

Crops Day is a producer led annual event, related to Cropping Practices of corn, wheat, soybeans, forages, and other field crops. The purpose of Crops Day is to provide an opportunity for crop producers to meet and be educated on the latest technology; discuss pertinent marketing issues; learn about production, marketing and soil related topics; plus, interact and exchange ideas with fellow crop producers.

Organizers also hope that producers can implement at least two ideas as soon as they return back to their operations.
