Make the trek to central Iowa near Boone for the nation’s greatest summer agricultural showcase, the annual Farm Progress Show, held August 31 through September 2.

Precision agriculture demonstrations return to the Farm Progress Show and will share space with the standard field demonstrations. Strip till is gaining popularity across the Midwest. These demonstrations will be located east of the exhibit site in field demonstration number. For further information, check with the information booths or the video monitors throughout the grounds when you arrive. Demonstrations will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

Some precision companies will share space with the strip-till equipment makers. Other stand-alone precision and strip-till companies will also be demonstrating equipment and will be available to talk with you.

“There are no formal presentations there,” explains Matt Jungmann, Farm Progress national shows manager. “Visit with the companies you want to talk with at your convenience.”

Precision and strip-till technology demonstration area is designed to be educational. The one-on-one time you spend learning about the technology will be very helpful as you make decisions about implementing it into your operation.
