Registration now open for 2022 Ag Innovations Conference

Located 20 miles south of Portland, Oregon State University’s North Willamette Research and Extension Center is organizing and hosting the 2022 Ag Innovations Conference (AIC), featuring various presentations, field tours and a tradeshow.

Started in 2014 in California, the AIC’s purpose is to introduce new technologies to the grower community by speakers from universities, research organizations and the agriculture input industry.

There is a theme for each conference and the previous ones in California with general (2014), microbial control (2017), biologicals (2019), and comprehensive crop care (2020) themes were very successful. The 2022 AIC, Sept. 22-23, is being held in the Pacific Northwest for the first time with the theme of sustainable agriculture. The conference will be in a large tent in the westside lawn of NWREC. Please dress appropriately for the late September weather.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided during the conference.

An optional Harvest Dinner will be held on Sept. 23. Social hour begins at 5:30 p.m. with drinks and hors d’oeuvres, followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m.Dinner registration is $75 and can be easily added to your AIC registration using the same link.
