Meeting the Needs of Precision Growers

Precision growers Brad Murray, Jeff Wilson and Byron Seward will anchor a panel discussion on precision agriculture moderated by Dr. Dave Downey. The group will examine how ag retailers can best support the agronomic, technological and mechanical needs of ultra-precision farmers…

“Precision farming is not really an extraneous module to us. It’s not extracurricular,” Byron said. “It’s the way we farm – everything we do is focused around precision agriculture.”

Cover Your Assets: The Business Case for Adding Cover Crops to Your Retail Operation

Dr. Rob Myers, Regional Director of Extension Programs for the USDA North Central Region Sustainable Agricultural Research and Education program and agronomy faculty at the University of Missouri, will examine a topic that has ag retailers running for cover — cover crops, that is. He will address how adding cover crops to your ag retail business can help add to your bottom line.
