The Conference facility couldn't be any better. Everything under one roof. I especially like the idea of not having to go out into the cold for our noon meal — the food and its selections are the best! Lecture rooms are comfortable and most accommodating, sound and lighting are good. Pleasant for gatherings to learn from each other. I wouldn't change a thing!

The Trade Show
Trade show Exhibitors will be available online, each during an assigned time slot, to show and discuss with you current product offerings, including the latest seeds, supplies, equipment, and grower information. Join the Exhibitors online as your schedule allows.
The NCR-SARE Farmers Forum gives farmers, researchers, and educators the opportunity to share results from their on-farm grant research projects with other growers. The grant projects are supported by North Central Region-Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (NCR-SARE), a USDA-funded program that supports and promotes sustainable farming and ranching by offering competitive grants and educational opportunities.
