Peace of Mind for Your Farm
Working farm land requires tried and true strategies that businesses have used for generations. Your farm is much more than a business — it’s your way of life.
When it comes to putting your best interest first, a Certified Crop Adviser’s (CCA) or Certified Professional Agronomist's (CPAg) professional commitment and knowledge is the correct beginning.
An American Society of Agronomy certified CCA or CPAg can provide you with Sound Advice coupled with the most advanced tools you need to succeed.
ASA Certification is the standard by which agronomy professionals are judged internationally. For more than 30 years, ASA’s certification programs have set and maintained the highest of standards that benefit you and your farm business.
CCA-WHY For Growers?
The purpose of the CCA and CPAg programs is to protect the public and growers like you. These programs offer voluntary, professional certifications to Advisers – proving their commitment to their clients (you), their employers and to the public welfare. Farmers can depend on that determination and commitment for true results in the field.
All successful certification programs have one common element, and that is to serve and protect the public interest. Many professions require a license to practice such as in medicine, engineering, and accounting. A license is basically a certification program offered by the state. Certification programs offered by ASA are voluntary, but offer similar benefits as licensing programs. The ASA certification programs set higher standards for knowledge, skill and conduct within the agronomy fields – a higher standard you can depend on.
A trained CCA professional can increase per acre profit, depending on the crop and weather.
Those certified have up-to-date knowledge on the latest developments in agriculture. Certification standards require Certified Crop Advisers (CCAs) and Certified Professional Agronomists (CPAgs) to earn continuing education units (CEUs) every two years.
I Need the Best
Certified Crop Advisers and Certified Professional Agronomists earn their certification by passing rigorous state and international exams. They must also sign and adhere to a code of ethics that places the customer’s needs first. CCAs and CPAgs meet and often exceed the high standards set by the American Society of Agronomy.
Agricultural scientists offer training to CCAs and CPAgs and depend on them to pass that knowledge on to you, the grower.
