CPM Short Course details

The three-day program starts Tuesday, December 11 with the Technical Service Provider (TSP) recertification program followed by the MCPR Plenary Sessions.

On Wednesday, the CPM Short Course's General Session theme of 'Take Control' will explore how to build resiliency into your cropping systems and organizations. Low commodity prices, trade wars and challenging weather patterns have tested our ability to recover easily from these challenges. As we look forward to 2019, this session focuses on how to develop a set of practices that allow individuals, organizations or systems to succeed and overcome adversity quickly.
