Sustainable Ag Conference

Jun 22, 2023
Sustainable Agronomy Conference offered free, online

The American Society of Agronomy will host the Sixth Annual Sustainable Agronomy Conference as a free virtual-event series, presented on four dates.

The conference consists of sessions over four weeks starting on July 12, with a two-hour session each week. This conference provides certified crop advisors, agri-sales professionals and growers 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.

American-Society-of-AgronomyThe conference topics are:

  • July 12: Artificial intelligence and unmanned aerial vehicles for sustainable crop management.
  • July 19: Preserving pest management options through integrated pest management principles.
  • July 26: Building sustainable management systems through the 4R principles.
  • August 2: Decoding the basics of carbon and ecosystems services markets for short- and long-term success.

Each session begins at 11 a.m. Central.

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, according to a news release. The mission of the conference is to have attendees leave with information that allows them to confidently recommend to clients and implement in the field. Speakers, moderators, and panel participants will have a deep understanding of “why” and “how” to implement sustainable agronomy.
