The PrecisionAg Institute will be the supporting organization for the new AG CONNECT Expo 2010, which holds it’s first international show on January 13-15, 2010 in Orlando, Fla., according to the Association of Equipment Manufacturers.

Attendees will find the latest innovations, products, services and technology in all agriculture sectors and will be able to network and discuss industry trends and issues with experts worldwide.

“The PrecisionAg Institute’s mission is to support the use of technology to promote efficiency, agronomy and stewardship in agriculture through education and outreach. It’s a mission that is clearly shared by AG CONNECT Expo, and we are pleased to serve as a sponsor of technology education at this inaugural event,” said K. Elliott Nowels, director of the PrecisionAg Institute.

“Bringing the best minds together from around the world to network and share ideas on ag technology is an important way we all learn, evolve, and grow,” Nowels said. “The PrecisionAg Institute supports AEM’s efforts to facilitate this exchange through AG CONNECT Expo.”

Charlie O’Brien, AEM’s vice president of agricultural services, explained that producers and other agribusiness professionals face increasing challenges as they strive to operate at maximum productivity. “PrecisionAg Institute’s research and analysis will provide invaluable insights for attendees and AG CONNECT Expo will advance the latest ‘best practices’ in North America and internationally,” O’Brien said.

“There is wide-spread and growing interest in cost and time efficiencies of precision farming, and the participation of the PrecisionAg Institute offers show attendees an unparalleled opportunity to conveniently examine and compare the various technologies and products,” O’Brien added.
