Making smart decisions

Difficult growing conditions, tight margins and weak commodity prices made 2018 a challenging year for Iowa crop production. Making smart, informed decisions based on the latest research and developing technology takes on greater importance for the success of the farming operation.

The Iowa State University Integrated Crop Management Conference is Iowa's premier crop production education event. No other program in Iowa brings together the diverse range of topics, slate of expert presenters and results of the latest University research. Drawing nearly 1,000 of the top crop production professionals from across Iowa and the midwest together for two days to learn, listen and share this is an event you won't want to miss.

Excellent content, knowledgeable speakers, and practical information I can take home and use.

I always enjoy this program. Great experience having out of state speakers.

There are so many great presentations available it's sometimes hard to select which to attend!

This is always a good conference... one of the best I attend. Great variety of topics and speakers. I appreciate talks that are not just production oriented.
