This conference also provides a wealth of opportunities for attendees to earn pesticide recertification credits, continuing education units (CEUs) for a variety of professional certifications, and network with colleagues, industry experts, college and university faculty, regulatory experts, and Penn State Extension educators.

This year’s conference will focus on the impact of regional extreme weather, such as drought, flooding, heat, and high wind, on our industry.
