The 2014 Professional Crop Producers Conference is on target to be a great program this year. The conference is set for February 17, 18 and 19 at the Eden Resort this year and will be an exciting opportunity to hear some great presentations and network with other crop producers, consultants and industry professionals on state of the art crop production tactics. In today’s world of high risk/high reward crop production, it’s critical to be using the best strategies and latest technologies to grow top yields and improve your bottom line.
The theme of this year’s conference “Managing for Higher Yields and Profits” is built around a solid program with nationally recognized speakers and our popular grower roundtables to discuss lessons learned from the field this year.
The program will kick off with a Pre Conference Symposium at 4 pm on Monday, February 17th with “Diagnosing Early Season Corn Production Problems” presented by Dr. Bob Nielsen, a noted corn expert from Purdue who will share some of his inside secrets diagnosing early season corn production problems.
2014 PCPC will be packed with other top presenters on soil health, managing grain drying and storage, grain marketing, herbicide resistance, vomitoxin management, cover crops, forages, and more. This will be a great event to network with the leaders in the crop production industry in the state.
The conference is sponsored by a group of commodity associations including the PA No-till Alliance, PA Forage and Grassland Council, The PA Corn Growers Association and the Mid- Atlantic Soybean Association, working in conjunction with Penn State Extension.
The cost for the two day conference is $75, with discounts available for one day @ $50 and $20/day student registrations. The preconference program is an additional $35. For more information on registering or being a sponsor call (717) 635-2320.
