The annual Indiana Crop Adviser Conference will take place Dec. 14-15 at the Indianapolis Marriott East hotel.

The conference is for Certified Crop Advisers, who counsel farmers, ranchers and others in the agricultural industry.

Tony Vyn, Purdue University professor of agronomy and co-chair of the conference planning committee, says the conference focuses on four main management areas: plant nutrients, crops, pests, and soil and water.

Conference speakers will discuss the performance of new crop input products, such as pesticides, fertilizers and equipment options; crop diseases; herbicide resistant weeds; and nitrogen loss.

"There's going to be quite a bit of emphasis on climate change, carbon sequestration and how nutrient management systems can address simultaneous needs of world's demand for food with increasing population as well as maintaining environment quality," Vyn adds.

Speakers represent Purdue and 12 other universities, the agricultural industry, Indiana Conservation Crops Initiative, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and Indiana Department of Natural Resources.
