What Sets Us Apart

Every year, the Eco-Ag Conference & Trade Show sets a new standard for innovative and practical learning in modern agriculture. Each moment of programming is thoughtfully curated to provide useful, practical and measurable information and connections that you can apply to your operation. Join us for the main conference and trade show on Dec. 6-7 or decide to come early for one of our incredible full-day Eco-Ag U intensive workshops… either way you can expect a fulfilling experience that will include: 

1. Exceptional learning from leading farmers, agronomists, and others who are pioneering a new way to farm ecologically and economically. 

2. Engagement with innovative companies building tools and services to help you surpass your goals.

3. Connecting with your peers who are also seeking to chart a new path forward for their operations and with experienced growers and agronomists who have valuable lessons learned and are ready to share. 

But don’t just listen to us, here’s what past attendees have said!

Filled with shorter, 1- to 2-hour sessions and amazing keynotes, you can follow single tracks ranging from soil health to farm management to livestock and beyond, or hop between them all.

Eco-Ag U

Get the most out of your experience by signing up for an Eco-Ag U workshop (or two!) – the registration fee includes your choice of pre-conference workshops plus the entire conference and trade show. Spend a full day with an instructor diving deep into a topic that’s important to you. You will have direct, small-classroom access to the top minds in eco-agriculture, where you can learn the real details behind their success, and ask questions specific to your farm or operation.

The education never stops. In between conference sessions, choose from a selection of instructors available for Q&A. These more informal roundtable-style talks will allow you to connect with the instructor and others who may have shared experiences.
