Certified Crop Advisors™ (CCAs) are experts in agronomy and provide honest, well thought out advice to farmers. At 655+ members in Ontario and counting, we are a strong voice in support of Ontario farmers. Ask us today how we can help you.

Who are Certified Crop Advisors?

Several hundred men and women across Ontario serve farmers as crop advisors, providing information and expertise on crop production, crop protection and natural resource management. This group of commercial, public and independent advisors play an important role in modern agriculture. Crop advisors provide advice and counsel producers in their decision making process. 

This responsibility requires a good understanding of science, food safety, technology, economics and the environment. Crop advisors combine knowledge in these disciplines with their local experience to render sound recommendations. 


Current CCA Chair Deb Campbell, and past CCA Chair Ken Currah. Thank you, Ken, for your dedication to the association! We look forward to working with Deb in the upcoming years!


The Ontario CCA Board of Directors would like to thank the CropLife - Ontario Council for their generous support and financial contribution to the creation of this new website.

The purpose of a certification program is to protect the public and the profession. The same is true of our CCA certification. It is a voluntary professional enhancement to a person’s career credentials. Once certified we are telling our clients, employer and the public that we are serious about what we do as a professional. The American Society of Agronomy confers the certification to qualifying CCAs.
