NEATAWant to learn more about excellent profit opportunities from precision technology for your farm? Growers from Nebraska and surrounding states should head for Grand Island, NE on January 28-29 for the annual Nebraska Agricultural Technologies Association Conference & Trade Show at the Grand Island Midtown Holiday Inn Conference Center.

The meeting begins with a hands-on session allowing growers to work a computer program to determine best ‘what-if’ scenarios regarding the 2008 Farm Bill. Other session topics will discuss a wide range of issues from land management software, new communication tools, precision agriculture trends, and remote sensing aerial imagery to machine vision weed control, mapping tools, in-season Nitrogen management and side-by-side trial management and decision making.

A trade show will give growers the opportunity to ‘kick the tires’ on a wide variety of precision products as well as talk to company experts on hand.

NeATA is Nebraska’s newest grassroots agricultural-based non-profit associations. The association was founded by innovative Nebraska farmers and agribusiness representatives that share a common desire to stay abreast of emerging agricultural technologies. The NeATA organization will facilitate on-farm research opportunities, educational programs, and a perpetual investigation of practical applications for new agricultural technologies.
