2020 Irrigated Crop Production Update Conference

The Lethbridge Irrigated Crop Production Update has been set for January 14-15, 2020 at the Sandman Signature Lethbridge Lodge (in the main ballroom). This conference will be of interest to irrigated crop producers, crop advisers, irrigation equipment dealers, and others connected to the irrigation industry. This conference continues to grow, with over 350 attendees last time it was held in 2018. The agenda includes presentations on agronomic management, crop opportunities, financial management, pest management, irrigation water management, irrigation technology, looking forward and, on the afternoon of the second day, there will be a special Pesticide Applicators Session that offers hard to get credits.

The conference registration fee is $120 (including GST) and includes two lunches, snacks, and the opportunity to see all 27 of the speaker presentations. The early registration deadline is January 5, 2020 and the late registration fee will be $140 (including GST). The last time the conference was held, there were more than 350 registrants, so there is potential for this conference to sell-out. I suggest registering early to avoid disappointment.


To register, you can phone the Alberta Agriculture and Forestry Ag-Info Centre at 1-800-387-6030
They accept Visa, MasterCard, or cheque. Ag-Info Centre hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday to Friday. Please note, the registration desk will be closed December 25, 2017 through January 2, 2018.
