Twenty-six sessions at the High Plains No-Till Conference in Burlington have been approved for certified crop adviser credits. Eight of those sessions will also offer continuing education credits for licensed qualified supervisors, certified operators, and private applicators. 

Scheduled for February 4-5, the event will take place at the Burlington Community and Education Center. In addition to a trade show and outdoor equipment display, breakout sessions will be presented on an assortment of subjects, including soil health, regenerative grazing, farm profitability, specialty crops, and technology. Farmers will also share their first-hand experience with composting, no-till, and other conservation methods on producer panels dedicated to grazing cover crops and finding niche and direct markets.

"We are excited to bring in a lot of new speakers this year," said Joni Mitchek, coordinator for the Colorado Conservation Tillage Association. "And we always try to offer as many credits as possible."

The crop adviser credits approved for the event include four in Nutrient Management, four in Soil and Water Management, one in Integrated Pest Management, ten in Crop Management, six in Professional Development, and one in Precision Ag.

In addition, continuing education credits will be available in the categories of Environmental Protection, Use of Pesticides, Agriculture Insect Control, Agriculture Weed Control, and Stored Commodities Treatment.
