The CTIC Conservation in Action Tour is getting back on the bus! Join us in St. Louis, Mo., September 12 and 13 for a celebration of CTIC's 40th Anniversary and our 15th Conservation in Action Tour.
Two action-packed days will include an up-close look at conservation systems in action, the latest in ag tech, and an exploration of the past, present and future of conservation agriculture.
On Monday evening, September 12th, we will be celebrating CTIC's 40th Anniversary. We will be celebrating in the heart of St. Louis—Forest Park in the elegant Trolley Room. At the celebration, we’ll enjoy drinks, food and the chance to reminisce about the past 40 years and look forward to the next 40.
We’ll start the day Tuesday the 13th with a tour of the Henry White Farm, a demonstration farm owned by the Illinois Department of Agriculture. In addition to research plots, the farm's 94 acres contain wetlands, evergreen and deciduous groves, restored prairie and wildlife habitat. At the Henry White Farm, we’ll also hear an array of speakers sharing their insights on conservation practices.
After lunch, we will head to the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, home to nearly 300 scientists and a launch pad for innovative start-ups. We will tour their facilities, network with ag tech entrepreneurs at an Ag Tech Showcase hosted by CTIC and the Danforth Center, and engage in talks and panel discussions. It will be a special, one-time event that you do not want to miss!
Finally, we will spend the evening with dinner and drinks surrounded by friends within the agriculture industry. We'll hear from special, soon to be announced speakers for insight into the world of conservation agriculture today…and tomorrow.
CTIC is leading a new effort to pilot a phosphorus load reduction market in the Western Lake Erie Basin (Maumee, Sandusky, and Cedar-Portage watersheds, see map). Growers within the indicated watersheds are now being sought to
participate in this pilot market.
