The Illinois Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) Program is part of the International Certified Crop Adviser Program, which is professional certification offered by the American Society of Agronomy.
Working with a CCA means getting advice from an expert who can understand your needs and your problems. Extensive experience in managing nutrients, soil, water, crops, and pests means CCAs can see the big picture when it comes to increasing yields. They work with you to increase your profit, plan for the future, and explore new opportunities.
Illinois leads the nation with the largest number of professionals who have joined their peers to become part of a voluntary program whose professional standards are widely re- spected by industry, academia, and government and are referenced in statutes. Certification tells your clients, employer, and the public that you are serious about what you do as a professional.
