Registration is open for this year’s Southwest Ag Summit, set for Feb. 20-23 in Yuma, Ariz., and featuring a golf tournament this year.

The Yuma Fresh Vegetable Association’s event kicks off with the Jacob Louis Daily golf tournament on Feb. 20 at the Mesa Del Sol Golf Club, and the schedule for the following days includes educational sessions, field demonstrations, an expo, the sold-out Harvest Dinner Feb. 22 and an Advanced Ag Tour the morning of Feb. 23.

Craig Regelbrugge, national co-chair of the Ag Coalition for Immigration Reform, will deliver the keynote address on “Labor by the numbers,” focusing on how the agricultural workforce is changing and the struggles growers are experiencing, according to a news release. The talk will cover trends and the outlook for legislative and policy reforms.

Other sessions include regulatory updates, integrated pest management, and food safety updates, with the possibility of earning continuing education unit credits for Calif./Ariz. agricultural pest control adviser licensees and certified crop advisers, according to the release.

Online registration fees are $90 until Feb. 15. For more event information and to register, visit swagsummit.com.
