Here are my comments regarding the crop tour:
From Sunday afternoon after landing in Kansas City to Friday afternoon getting on the plane in Kansas City to fly home, I put on over 2,000 miles on the auto driving the tour. On the western leg, there were about 40 participants with about the same on the eastern leg. Participants included farmers, the Pro-Farmer staff, media, agronomists, crop insurance agents, seed consultants, etc.
The meetings each night had at least 150 participants with the local farmers turning out to see how the corp looked, etc. I enjoyed these meetings immensely since it allowed me to see how the local farmer thought there crops were doing and it allowed me to ask questions regarding their farming practices, etc.
Again, I had a great time and highly suggest you consider attending the tour at some time.
