This regional conference provides a forum for discussion and interaction between participants and university researchers. We are looking forward to introducing new specialists from the University of Illinois. We will also be offering dicamba training at the conclusion of the conference.

Certified Crop Advisers can earn up to 8 hours of continuing education credit. Advance registration, no later than one week before the conference, is $100 per person. Late and on-site registration is $120. Dates and locations along with a link to location-specific agendas and online registration are listed below.

2018 topics include:

  • Insect Management in Corn and Soybeans – Dr.  Nick Seiter, University of Illinois,  Department of Crop Sciences
  • How Do We Measure Success with Dicamba in 2018?  – Dr. Aaron Hager, University of Illinois, Department of Crop Sciences 
  • Crop Economics in a Continuing and New Normal Price Environment – Dr. Gary Schnitkey, University of Illinois, Department of Agriculture and Consumer Economics
  • Chippin’ Away at Nitrate Loss with Woodchip Bioreactors – Dr. Laura Christianson, University of Illinois, Department of Crop Sciences
  • Introductions and Updates in Field Crop Diseases – Dr. Nathan Kleczewski, University of Illinois, Department of Crop Sciences
  • Designing Crops of the Future for Maximum Efficiency and Productivity – Dr. Anthony Studer, University of Illinois, Department of Crop Sciences
  • Explaining the 2017 Growing Season – Dr.  Emerson Nafziger, University of Illinois,  Department of Crop Sciences

In early October 2017, the EPA approved revised labels for Xtendimax, FeXapan, and Engenia. In addition to being classified as restricted use pesticides, the labels now require applicators to attend an annual dicamba or group 4 herbicide-specific training prior to using the products. At 4 pm, a 60-minute “Dicamba Training for Illinois” provided by industry educators will be available. This training will meet the new educational requirements.
