This year’s event will be in an online delivery format again, there will be an opportunity for in-depth learning for agronomists, producers, industry and retail to improve their crop scouting skills and further their agronomic knowledge. Crop Diagnostic Week will have various online learning opportunities spread out over four days from July 26 to 29, 2021.

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture is proud to partner with the Irrigation Crop Diversification Corporation (ICDC) in Outlook, SK to deliver this exciting event. You can read more about the great work that ICDC does at http://irrigationsaskatchewan.com/icdc/ . ICDC is also part of the Agri-ARM network – eight producer-directed applied research and demonstration organizations located across the province.

While sweep nets will not be pre-sold at the event this year, you can purchase one directly from Pro Metal in Regina (www.prometal.ca; 306-525-6710).

Each day will be from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. (approximately) and attendees will have to register for each day separately. They will have the freedom to come and go and we will be able to note who has attended what so that we can accurately track CCA CEUs as well.
