CIATours

Hear the unique story of the Everglades Agricultural Area, a tale of farming with the entire ecosystem in mind.

Every year, we select a special place to hold a dynamic, action-packed tour that showcases innovative ideas and emerging technologies in conservation agriculture. This year, we're headed to Florida, and we'd love to see you there. We'll explore the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) and hear the tale of farmers working with the entire ecosystem in mind.

What will I see? 
 
  • Stormwater Treatment Areas, which played a role in Everglades restoration
  • Flooded rice protection as a cover crop for sugar cane growers
  • Owl boxes that provide housing for barn owls, which manage pests in EAA fields
  • Demonstrations showing subsidence (soil shrinkage) in the EAA
  • Precision agriculture technology
  • And much more!
