Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC) will host a Learning Center Session on improving nutrient efficiency and increasing crop production with the 4Rs at the 2013 Commodity Classic in Kissimmee, Florida, on March 1, 2013.

Partners from the Indian Creek watershed in Livingston County, Ill., will share their insight on demonstration projects ranging from nutrient use efficiency plots to strip-till. The session will also highlight how the community engages in conservation through CTIC’s Indian Creek Watershed Project.

Speakers will include John Traub, a farmer from the Indian Creek watershed; Ron Olson, North American country agronomist, The Mosaic Company; Dr. Rob Zemenchik, North American marketing manager, Case IH Crop Production Products; and Karen Scanlon, executive director, CTIC.

CTIC’s booth at Classic will highlight growers who found success, in both productivity and profitability, with cropping systems that build soil quality. CTIC will also have two giveaway opportunities, including a free trip to its 2013 Conservation In Action Tour in the Indian Creek watershed near Bloomington, Illinois in July. Visit CTIC at booth number 1314.
