Unlike growers in the Midwest, many of us are running labor-intensive specialty crop operations. We needed a program targeted to the challenges we face.”
– Johnny Barnes, Program Champion and Sponsor

Agriculture is an essential part of our economy as it directly contributes to the health and well-being of our ever growing population. As such, professionals in the industry need a means for continuing education, particularly at the executive level. It is critical that executive producers, packers and processors continue to learn and expose themselves to new tools, techniques and applications all in an effort to ensure that their operations remain profitable and sustainable for generations to come. The specialty crop and geographic customization of the program does just that.
