The first-ever PrecisionAg Learning Center at Commodity Classic was a big hit with growers at the trade show.
According to the PrecisionAg.com there was a steady stream of attendees asking questions, sitting in on presentations, and chatting with growers who use precision technology. Among the presenters were Idaho grower Robert Blair and Iowa grower Dennis Friest, Craig Smith from Kansas State University and Tracy Blackmer, Iowa Soybean Association Director of Research.
The Learning Center also offered growers the opportunity to register for great giveaways provided by PrecisionAg partners.

Other winners are listed here on the PrecisionAg site.
