There’s still time to register for the InfoAg 2007 conference July 10-12 at the Crowne Plaza Convention Center in Springfield, Illinois. Conference organizers report that over 450 people have registered so far and interest is very high. The conference hotel has sold out, but there are still plenty of rooms in hotels very close by for very reasonable rates.
Why should you go? Just to find out everything there is to know about precision agriculture. Concurrent sessions and over 60 speakers will address a wide variety of topics, like Callibrating Yield Monitors, Getting Practices Approved for NRCS Funding, Approaches to N Management, On-Farm Trial Tools, Resource Conservation and Precision Ag, Crop Variability, GPS in Agriculture, Precision Nutrient Management, and much, much more.
Check out the entire schedule at a glance here.
If you want to come early and/or stay late, there are more educational opportunities before and after the conference. The pre-conference tour on Monday, July 9, will include stops at Tim Seifert’s farm, Brandt Consolidated and TeeJet’s manufacturing plant.
The Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC) invites all InfoAg attendees to participate in a workshop, Gulf of Mexico Hypoxic Zone: A Dialogue for Agriculture, which will be held immediately following InfoAg on July 12-13, 2007. You can learn more about the workshop at the CTIC web site.
