commclassic2015Corn, soybean, wheat and sorghum growers from all over the country are heading to Phoenix this week for the 20th annual Commodity Classic convention and trade show.

“Commodity Classic gives us the opportunity not just to celebrate great work, meet with friends and learn about new products and services, it allows growers to get together in one place to shape policy for our organization,” said National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) President Chip Bowling. “This year, all eyes and ears will be focused on the importance of building profitable demand for our farmers when corn production is high and corn prices are low.”

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack will make his sixth visit to Commodity Classic to address farmers during the event’s General Session on Friday.

Established in 1996, Commodity Classic is America’s largest farmer-led, farmer-focused convention and trade show, produced by the National Corn Growers Association, American Soybean Association, National Association of Wheat Growers and National Sorghum Producers. Starting in 2016, the Association of Equipment Manufacturers joins as the newest affiliate of Commodity Classic.

We’ll be bringing it all to you right here on Precision.AgWired, thanks to our wonderful sponsors!
