Illinois Specialty Crop Conference underway


Illinois Specialty Crop Conference underway

The Illinois Specialty Crop Conference begins today in a virtual format.

While disappointed not to be able to meet in person, Dr. Elizabeth Wahle with University of Illinois Extension says there are some benefits to the virtual format.

“Now you can just outright binge watch throughout the conference. Before, you were only able to see as many sessions as one person can walk from to the next one. Now you can watch everything.”  

There are more than 65 sessions participants can view at their own pace in different tracks including beginning farmers, pollinators, agritourism, digital business and specific crops.

The conference also offers live events, keynote speakers, an exhibit hall and networking opportunities today through Friday. Click here to register.
