Agriculture Climate Tools Workshop – Rockford

Growing seasons are shifting — storms, floods, droughts, and wildfires are becoming more common. Connect with agricultural climate experts, explore resources, and discuss real-world scenarios at a climate-smart farming workshop. Leave with a better understanding of local growing conditions and weather monitoring tools, and feel confident planning for crop planting, fertilization schedules, irrigation, and more for the 2024 growing season and beyond.

The workshops are free and include lunch. The workshops are open to specialty growers, commercial agriculture, horticulture, and landscape professionals, as well as Natural Resources Conservation Service and Soil and Water Conservation District personnel. Three Crop Sciences CEU credits are available for Certified Crop Advisors. Participants are welcome to bring laptops and/or tablets to engage with the program. Sign up by February 22. Sessions are limited to 30 participants.
