We are the best of two worlds: The Acres U.S.A. Eco-Ag Conference & Trade Show offers expertise from practitioners who have been in the field for decades, and information from top experts who are leading the industry in innovation. This strategy helps Acres U.S.A. achieve its primary goal – to make this the most useful conference on agriculture that you’ve ever attended.

We’ve put together a fabulous program with amazing speakers for the 2019 Eco-Ag Conference & Trade Show and we can’t wait for you to join us! Our conference has two parts: All-day advanced learning seminars Eco-Ag U and the Eco-Ag Conference and Trade Show. Eco-Ag U gives attendees an in-depth look at specific farming tactics in an all-day workshop setting.

The Eco-Ag Conference features over 30 shorter sessions and keynotes to choose from on topics such as soil health, animal agriculture, human health plant nutrition and more. The conference also offers social mixers, panels and access to our amazing trade show.

Eco-Ag U

The cornerstone of our conference, these intensive, daylong courses allow attendees full-day classroom environments to spend with expert instructors.
