DTC CCA Days
 
The Purdue University Crop Diagnostic Training and Research Center is known across the Midwest for its unique “hands-on” approach for teaching the art and science of accurately diagnosing agricultural crop problems. The Center is designed to provide informative topics in a “real world” environment, where agriculturalists can sharpen their crop problem trouble-shooting skills and evaluate new and alternative management.

Training workshops are valuable for individuals identifying insect, nematode, herbicide, soil fertility, and disease problems in corn, soybean, forages, and small grains. These workshops also provide pertinent information on interacting factors (nutrient, pest, and environmental stresses) that impact crop growth and development. The long term goal of the Center is to provide quality, state-of-the-art training in all aspects of crop production and management.
 
Due to the “hands-on” nature of this workshop, enrollment is limited to 60 people per day. Concurrent sessions of 20 to 30 registrants will limit class size and provide a better learning atmosphere.
 
Registration is $55 per person. Contact Lisa Green at (765) 494-4783 or email at lgreen06@purdue.edu
 
 

CCA of the Year

The Indiana CCA Board of Directors is pleased to announce the 2014 CCA of the Year, Barry Fisher. 
 
Barry Fisher accepts the Indiana CCA of the Year Award from Board Chair, Greg Kneubuhler
 
Indiana CCA is an annual award given to an individual selected by an executive committee of the Indiana CCA Board. This committee is composed of the Board Chair, Past Board Chair, recent Ex Officio Board Chair and a representative of the Indiana Farm Bureau.
 
A list of candidates is submitted by local farm bureaus. These candidates are considered and ranked as the best representative of CCA to serve and protect the public interest. Individuals selected for Indiana CCA of the year demonstrate leadership and effectiveness in their agricultural roles. Through the award, we look to recognize those CCAs who demonstrate higher standards of sharing knowledge, skill and conduct in the field of agronomy.
 
Barry Fisher is a wonderful example of a practicing CCA who deserves the recognition and reward that goes with his selection for 2014.
