Certified Crop Adviser

BROOKFIELD, Wis. — Through the American Society of Agronomy (ASA) and Soil Science Society of America (SSSA), continuing education credits have been approved for the upcoming National Cover Crop Summit, a free online event designed to improve cover crop knowledge and management for farmers and educators.

A total of 9 credits have been authorized for the speakers headlining this inaugural virtual event, slated for March 20-21, 2019.

There is already a high degree of interest in the free 2-day summit, as its drawn registrations from all 50 U.S. states and more than 40 countries. The full lineup of speakers and sessions topics can be found on the Summit website.

Certified crop advisers interested in earning credits will be asked to fill out the “Missing CEUs” form on the CCA website to receive their board-approved CEUs. Participants are required to watch the entire presentation for which they’re seeking CEUs. 

“When someone becomes a Certified Crop Advisor they sign a code of ethics. False reporting of CEUs is a violation of the CCA ethics code and it could lead to a certification being revoked,” says Lacey Edwardson, a certification representative for the ASA/SSSA.

The following National Cover Crop Summit sessions have been approved for CEUs. The tracking numbers are valid for either March 20 or March 21 viewing.
