Fifty years ago, the production on one U.S. farm fed about 75 people. Today, each of our farms feeds 165 people. How did we achieve this progress in such a relatively short amount of time? By putting new technology and management practices into play. This summer, Farm Journal wants to help you continue the process of learning and employing new technology, tools and management techniques, through a series of educational events we’re hosting around the country. At each event, you’ll interact with our Field Agronomists, Ken Ferrie or Missy Bauer, and a host of industry leaders. You’ll also have time to talk with other progressive farmers who are committed to improving their operations, just like you. A couple of our programs are listed below. You can learn more about these and our other events at bit.ly/2xVSIrp. I hope to see you at one sometime in the weeks ahead.
