Certified Crop Advisor      (Click here to find a CCA)

Several thousand men and women serve our nation’s farmers as crop advisers. They provide information and expertise on crop production, crop protection and natural resource management. This group of commercial, public and independent advisers plays an important role in modern agriculture. Crop advisers provide advice and council farmers in their decision making process. This responsibility requires a good understanding of science, food safety, technology, economics and environment. Crop advisers combine knowledge in these disciplines with their local experience to render sound recommendations.
