Ag Leader Technology, Inc., a manufacturer of precision farming equipment, recently broke ground on Ag Leader Academy, a 25,000 square-foot facility dedicated to providing the ag industry with specialized, hands-on training of precision farming systems.
The building, just west of Ag Leader's current facility in Ames, Iowa, will feature a 12,000 square-foot equipment showroom where large equipment will be used for installation trainings and other demonstrations. There will also be two general classrooms, providing more opportunity for hands-on participation, and a computer lab designed for software training sessions.
Educational sessions on various topics will take place regularly at the facility. Sessions will be customized for Ag Leader dealers and customers as well as for other industry personnel. Ag Leader will also continue to offer their in-field training sessions. Ag Leader Academy is expected to be completed in November 2009.
