The SMS planning committee is closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation and the impact it may have on our event in December. While it is our hope to meet in person, the committee is considering virtual, alternative formats. We want to ensure the health and wellbeing of our participants, vendors, venue staff, and everyone else involved in the summitt's production while maintaining the high standard of programmatic content the event has provided over the years. Registrants will continue to receive updates about the event and we will communicate any changes to format as soon as possible. 

This summit emphasizes proven farmer experience and applied science. Straight from the fields, learn how heavier, colder soils aren’t necessarily the challenge they’re made out to be. Hear from long-time no-till, reduced tillage and cover crop farmers as they share their experiences, so you can be spared the same hard-learned lessons.

The Summit features keynote speakers, breakout sessions, table talks and vendor booths.  

Attendees who stay for the entire conference will be offered CCA continuing education units (CEUs).  CEU categories are noted in parentheses for each session. Available categories include:

  • CM - Crop management
  • PA - Precision agriculture
  • PD - Professional development
  • PM - Pest management
  • SW - Soil and water
