Event is expected to draw 600-plus participants and dozens of technology companies.
Whether you’re a precision farming guru or a newbie with technology tools, don’t overlook the last-minute opportunity to participate in the 2011 InfoAg Conference scheduled for next week, July 12-14, in Springfield, Ill.
The event offers five program tracts for farmers’ consideration.
“We’re offering different levels of presentations, something for everyone,” says Quentin Rund, conference secretary. “We have a precision ag 101 tract, so if you’re just getting started with technology. Or, if you’ve been using data for some time and need help managing it, we have a tract for that, too.”
This year, InfoAg is designed to address technology tools for farmers with their farm’s geographic location in mind. The programs are organized by Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, South and West. In addition, farmers can gain some international perspective from sessions focused on precision farming tools used in Asia, Europe and South America.
InfoAg is expected to draw more than 600 domestic and international participants during the three-day event. In addition, several dozen companies representing precision agriculture techniques and tools are exhibiting at the conference.
“There are so many networking opportunities available,” Rund says. “You’ve seen some of the software and hardware company ads in magazines, and here you can talk with these people face-to-face. It’s a great way to make connections.”
On-site registration fees vary between $295 for a one-day pass and $525 for the full three days. For more information about the conference and registration details, go to www.infoag.org
