Don't miss your chance to get the early registration rate for the 16th annual Conservation in Action Tour in Frankenmuth, Michigan, July 10-11, 2023.

This year’s tour theme, Experiencing Conservation in Supply Chains, will help connect the circle from farmer to consumer. At this year’s event, farmers, input suppliers, conservation advocates and processors will dig deep and share their perspectives on sustainable, climate-smart food production. Attendees can look forward to seeing the supply chain up close and personal, including cutting edge dairy practices, specialty crops like sugar beets and dry beans, milling and processing, and more.

Also new this year is a special mixer for the next generation of conservation agriculture champions. Bring a young colleague, the new person in the office, an intern or a student. After all, the future of conservation agriculture is about more than crops, it’s about people, too.
