Monitoring and Managing Crop Health and Quality is the theme of the 2014 Western Illinois University School of Agriculture's Allison Farm Field Day program.

Gruver will also deliver a presentation and will moderate a farmer panel discussion featuring successful organic grain farmers in the region. They keynote presentation will be delivered by John Kempf of Advancing Eco-Agriculture.

"He will explore relationships between crop nutrition and crop health with an emphasis on field and laboratory methods of monitoring crop nutritional status. Additional speakers will include Dr. Walter Goldstein of the Mandaamin Institute and John Pape of World Food Processing," he added.
