Who are Certified Crop Advisors?

Several hundred men and women across Ontario serve farmers as crop advisors, providing information and expertise on crop production, crop protection and natural resource management. This group of commercial, public and independent advisors play an important role in modern agriculture. Crop advisors provide advice and counsel producers in their decision making process. 

This responsibility requires a good understanding of science, food safety, technology, economics and the environment. Crop advisors combine knowledge in these disciplines with their local experience to render sound recommendations.

Enhanced efficiency nitrogen fertilizers

Enhanced efficiency fertilizers (EEFs) are forms of fertilizer designed to reduce nutrient losses to the environment and increase nutrient availability to crops. There are many EEF choices on the market, but it's essential to understand each product and its mode of action in relation to your needs. Learn more about EEFs in this webinar, featuring Alan Blaylock, senior agronomist, from Nutrien. There are 1.0 NM CEU credits available.

The purpose of a certification program is to protect the public and the profession. The same is true of our CCA certification. It is a voluntary professional enhancement to a person’s career credentials. Once certified we are telling our clients, employer and the public that we are serious about what we do as a professional. The American Society of Agronomy confers the certification to qualifying CCAs.
