We invite you to be a part of the premier conference in the Pacific Northwest featuring the integration of dryland and irrigated oilseed and direct seed cropping systems. The 2015 theme of “Cropping Concepts” will be the focus throughout the three-day event, with oral and poster presentations and a trade show highlighting strategies and innovative ideas to improve crop production and ultimately generate positive income.
General sessions will feature crossover topics such as soil health and quality, marketing oilseeds and cereals, weed management, and precision agriculture. Breakout sessions will focus on more detailed oilseed and direct seed management and production practices, including managing residue, planting and chemical application strategies, pest and disease management, cover crops, benefits and methods for building organic matter, and more.
The conference format will maximize networking and learning opportunities in large and small group settings each day. You will be able to interact with over 600 producers, industry experts, research scientists, and suppliers from around the PNW and North America. Please consider joining us at the 2015 PNW Oilseed and Direct Seed Conference and expanding your sales opportunities through sponsorship and/or trade show participation!
PNDSA needs you!
