June 22-25, 2014

The 6th World Congress on Conservation Agriculture (WCCA) gave nearly 400 participants from 51 countries the opportunity to learn from and network with an international gathering of agricultural experts. Agricultural production systems are not sustainable unless they are profitable, and Conservation Agriculture (CA) holds the key to building and maintaining healthy soils and profitable farming systems.
Live vicariously and experience WCCA through the eyes of those who were there.
Don't miss the abstracts and presentations from the Congress, coming soon. In the meantime, you can visit wcca6.org to learn more about the speakers and events.


Sustainable Intensification
As world population grows, the demand for food, fuel and fiber will grow. CA will allow producers to intensify their cropping systems to increase production sustainably without undue expansion in land area devoted to agriculture.

Climate Resilient Systems
A well-designed CA system contains a diversity of crop types and healthy soils that give producers more options for adjusting to changes in rainfall patterns or growing-season temperatures while also contributing to climate change mitigation.

Innovations in Adoption
The best teacher of interconnected farming practices is someone who has successfully mastered them. Innovative CA practitioners, researchers and service providers will share their experience and knowledge.
