2005 Winter Crop Schools

The 2005 Winter Crop Schools offer agribusiness professionals and producers in-depth training on a variety of topics. By focusing on a specific management topic, students have more time to fully understand the material presented. Class sizes are limited to allow more student-instructor interaction.

For individuals preparing to take the Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) exam, these schools provide an excellent opportunity to brush up on specific topics. Each course is approved for CCA credits (see below) for those already having their certification.

Dates and locations for each course are listed. All participants must be preregistered--no walk-in registrations will be allowed. Registration is $170 for single-day courses and $270 for multiple-day courses. Registration includes meals, breaks, and materials notebook.
