Training for Certified Crop Advisers (CCAs) will be offered at the Southeast Iowa Research Farm near Crawfordsville on June 23, 2005. The training will focus on identifying foliar soybean diseases, including Asian soybean rust. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and training follows from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. A meal will be provided as part of the $50 registration fee. Participants who want to become soybean rust First Detectors need to arrive by 9 a.m. for an introduction to the Fast Track First Detector program. If participants also stay for the afternoon tour, a total of 5 credit hours can be obtained. Topics covered in the morning training will give CCA credits of 1 hour in soil and water management and 2 hours in pest management.
