The 2021 Top Crop Summit will connect farmers and agronomists with the latest agronomic research and production tips through a two-day online educational program. Click here to view the digital show guide.

Since 2016, Top Crop Manager has brought together farmers, agronomists and crop consultants with experts from the ag community to share new research, production practices and actionable strategies. Each year, our goal is to help farmers stay on top of crop management practices and trends to remain a strong farming operation. In 2021, our esteemed speakers will present the latest agronomic strategies, fieldwork and technologies to help you prepare for your upcoming season.

Although our platform for 2021 has shifted, attendees will receive the same great content they have come to associate with the Top Crop Manager brand. New for 2021, we’re expanding the conference program with a series of live and on-demand presentations curated for attendees located in Eastern and Western Canada on Feb. 23 and 24.

This interactive event will arm you with the tools and information you need to kick off a successful growing season. Stay tuned for the full speaker lineup!

Herbicide resistance in Ontario: An ever-evolving affair

Dr. François Tardif is a professor in the department of plant agriculture at the University of Guelph.

Weeds resistant to herbicides in Ontario have been around for a while. Yet we are still battling this issue. The answer lies not only in the biology and agronomy of this issue, but also in the economics of farming and the human response to perceived risks. This presentation will encompass a brief history of herbicide resistance in Ontario and will also look at more recent developments. Some avenues for solutions will be presented, but we will also try to look into the future.

The myriad benefits of crop rotation and diversification

Speakers: Steve Larocque and Dr. Craig Drury

11:30 a.m. MT / 1:30 p.m. ET

Your fields, your farm: Getting the most from on-farm trials

Speaker: Megan Bourns, Manitoba Pulse and Soybean Growers

Ever wondered if you can reduce your seeding rate without sacrificing yield? Or maybe if that product your sales agronomist keeps pushing actually works? What about if fungicide application pays? Whether it’s these or other questions, on-farm trials are a powerful tool to inform your production decisions. This presentation will cover the need-to-know tips and tricks for conducting successful on-farm trials, bringing the power of research right to your field.
