There are over 850 active CCAs in California and Arizona that are playing an important role in helping growers with the efficient and environmentally sound use of fertilizer and crop management.

Many California CCAs recently completed the University of California/California Department of Food and Agriculture Nutrient Management Training Course which qualified them to complete nitrogen management plans for growers that are or will be required by the various California Regional Water Quality Boards.

“The California CCA program is the fastest growing CCA program in North America with more 200 individuals taking the January exam and we expect a large group to take the upcoming exam.

An exam preparation course has been scheduled in Sacramento on July 8 to help candidates prepare for the test”, said California CCA Chairman, Mike Huffman, The Lyman Group.   Registration for the exam prep course is available at
