_DSC0040This week’s Hick Chick Chat was recorded during the 2014 Precision Aerial Ag Show at Progress City where I literally bumped into former National Corn Growers Association president Leon Corzine while he was chatting with another central Illinois farmer, Jim Reed. I decided that it would be a good time to talk about precision ag and how it’s making the differences on their farms as well as how important having a one of a kind show like PAAS is to the area.

I first met Leon at a Farm Progress Show when he was coming up the ranks in NCGA and I was a brand new farm broadcaster, so I always enjoy learning more about his perspective as well as being a local Central Illinois farmer. This was my first time meeting Jim and he really had a lot of good ideas about how to become more involved and become an advocate.
