Jan. 9: Agriculture’s newest, most innovative products and services will be showcased at the What’s New sessions at the 2014 Commodity Classic.
“If you’re coming to Commodity Classic hoping to learn and gain some new ideas to take back to your farm, you’ll want to mark your calendar for the What’s New sessions,” said Commodity Classic Co-Chairman Wyatt Whitford. “These sessions offer a sneak peek at the new technology and products out on the trade show floor and an opportunity to ask the experts questions.”
Topics for the What’s New sessions include: the latest tractor and combine header technologies, soil fertility trends, new developments in seeds to help manage pests, the latest technology tools for the farm and tools to optimize seed selection for each field.
The sessions—scheduled for Friday, Feb. 28 and Saturday, March 1—provide the ideal opportunity for attendees to hear about what is new from the presenting companies so they can stop by the trade show booth to learn even more. Each session is 40 minutes long, allowing attendees to learn about the topic in an in-depth manner.
Companies selected to present include Case IH, DuPont Pioneer, John Deere, Monsanto, The Mosaic Company, Syngenta, The Climate Corporation, Trimble and United Soybean Board. The products and services are chosen by the grower community to ensure they are truly something new to the industry.
More information on the What’s New sessions and other events at Commodity Classic is available on the Commodity Classic website.
