Oct. 29: The National Corn Growers Association’s National Corn Yield Contest State Award Winners Breakfast will feature a keynote presentation on the outlook as planting season approaches, by Bryce Anderson, DTN/The Progressive Farmer senior meteorologist and occasional market analyst . The breakfast, which will be held Friday, March 1, during Commodity Classic in Kissimmee, Fl., honors state-level contest winners and offers a special chance to hear the insights from industry leaders on of-the-moment topics.
“We are pleased that Anderson will be providing a special look at planting this year in particular,” said NCGA Production and Stewardship Action Team Chair Dean Taylor. “The topic will interest to many farmers as, given this year’s drought, weather issues dominate a great degree of conversation. We look forward to the chance to share this inside look with the growers who, through the contest, provide farmers across the country with data that leads to improved agronomic practices.”
Anderson, who joined DTN in 1991, combines his expertise in weather forecasting with a Nebraska farm background to bring in-depth, focused commentary on the top weather developments affecting agriculture each day.
His comments in the DTN Ag Weather Brief and the DTN Market Impact Weather articles are read by persons involved in all aspects of the agricultural industry and in all major crop and livestock production areas of the U.S. and Canada. Bryce also delivers forecast commentary on regional and national farm broadcast programs and hosts DTN audio and video productions.
NCGA thanks DTN/The Progressive Farmer for providing Anderson as the keynote breakfast speaker to complement the stories which will be highlighted in the NCYC Corn Yield Guide. This publication, which highlights contest winners and looks at the circumstances and issues farmers faced during the prior year, will be published in the 2013 Mid-February edition of DTN’s Progressive Farmer Magazine.
