   This is a busy time of year for crop producers to attend industry meetings, conferences, workshops, clinics, and required trainings and certifications. Just like any other small business owner, there are numerous opportunities for producers to keep up and learn about the latest information on running their business. Producers need to obtain the proper licenses, certifications, and trainings required by local, state, and federal regulations too.
