About

You're invited to attend the 2020 Purdue Top Farmer Conference, which will take place on Friday, January 10, 2020 at the Beck Agricultural Center in West Lafayette, Indiana. The Center for Commercial Agriculture has brought together a great conference line-up featuring some of the nation's top experts on marketing, risk management, climate and crop production. A pre-conference workshop focused entirely on risk management strategies you can use on your farm is also available. The pre-conference workshop will take place during the afternoon of Thursday, January 9, 2020. Both the conference and the pre-conference are offered by Purdue's Center for Commercial Agriculture.

  • Long- and short-term agricultural outlook
  • Recent farmland value trends and a farmland outlook
  • Use and impact of cover crops on Corn Belt farming operations
  • Relative merits of USDA's ARC and PLC programs as you prepare for Farm Bill sign-up
