Jan. 28: Growers who attend Commodity Classic in Kissimmee, Fla. this year will return home armed, not just with memories to last a lifetime, but also with the latest profit-producing information available to farming. Today, farmers are now just one month away from the opening of what’s sure to be one of the biggest and best Commodity Classics ever, featuring the largest trade show in the convention’s 18-year history.
Each day at Commodity Classic offers Learning Center Sessions on increasing yields for your corn, soybean, wheat or sorghum crop, protecting the resources that sustain your operation and transitioning your farm to the next generation. What’s New and Mini What’s New Sessions provide the latest innovations in products and services to cover everything farmers need to know about technology, traits, farm management and disease control.
”Farming is all about improvements,” said 2013 Commodity Classic Co-Chair Mark Schwiebert. “Whether you’re looking for incremental changes or revamping operations on a significant level, you’ll find the resources you need to get started under one roof at Commodity Classic.”
The sky’s the limit for what growers can learn and who they can network with at Commodity Classic. And it all wraps up with a lot of fun during the Evening of Entertainment with the World Classic Rockers – with talent from classic rock groups Journey, Boston, Santana, Steppenwolf and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
The 2013 Commodity Classic takes place February 28-March 2 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center and the Orlando World Center Marriott in Kissimmee, Fla., and is presented annually by the National Corn Growers Association, American Soybean Association, National Association of Wheat Growers and National Sorghum Producers. In addition to social opportunities, the event offers a wide range of learning and networking opportunities for growers in the areas of production, policy, marketing, management and stewardship—as well as showcasing the latest in equipment, technology and innovation.
