Don’t miss the opportunity to register for the Conference on Conservation of Soil and Technology (CTTC) at early rates. The annual conference is scheduled to be held in person on March 8-9 at Northern Ohio University in Ada after last year’s virtual one. Connect with other farmers and CCAs, experience new ideas and increase your net income. Historically, more than 800 people will attend each day of this two-day conference, making it the largest agricultural meeting in northwestern Ohio.
Registration is $ 100 (after February 25, registration is $ 150). This registration is available online here and includes exclusive access to all online presentations approximately after March 21st. They will be available until April 22. For culture consultants, the QR code will be active this month. (Culture consultants must register individually to receive CCA credits.)
Take the opportunity to discuss one-on-one with speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and other participants. As noted above, your registration includes exclusive video-on-demand access to all presentations during the month, beginning approximately March 21st. Currently, ONU requires everyone to wear a mask in the building.
This year’s schedule has been set, and on Tuesday, March 8, there will be simultaneous classes on agronomic crop management, nutrient management, precision cultivation and technology, soil health, cover crops and unemployment. On Wednesday, March 9, parallel classes: Agronomic Management of Crops, Water Quality and Conservation Practices, Sustainable Fire Impact, Soil Health, Cover Crops and Unemployment. Move from room to room to hear from about 60 speakers and panelists. Spend time visiting exhibitors and interacting with other farmers, crop consultants and other representatives of the agricultural industry.
The meeting and program were developed by Ohio State University Expansion Specialists along with teachers of agriculture and natural resources in local counties with the help of local soil and water conservation areas and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Protection Service.
