For the past 21 years, the non-profit professional Texas Plant Protection Association (TPPA) has sponsored educational conferences for all involved in production agriculture. These conferences include the Annual Texas Plant Protection Conference and the TPPA Precision Ag Expo. These events have been successful due to the broad support of many leaders in Texas agriculture that represent academia, extension, research, consulting, agribusiness, farmers and regulatory.

The 2010 Texas Plant Protection Conference will be in early December in the Bryan – College Station area. Additional information is on the TPPA website.
