PrecisionAg Vision ConferenceThe Coalition to Advance Precision Agriculture (CAPA) is supporting the first-ever PrecisionAg Vision Conference.  The event will be held in Pheonix, Arizona on October 18-20, 2016.

“Precision is at the intersection of so many issues we’re facing in agriculture today – efficient use of nutrients and making sure those nutrients stay put, minimizing spray drift, helping farmers maximize efficiency, scouting from unmanned aerial vehicles, and so on,” said Daren Coppock, CAPA Co-chair and President & CEO, Agricultural Retailers Association. “People are amazed when they learn what’s being done on today’s modern agricultural landscape thanks to precision agriculture. And with technology developing at a very rapid rate, CAPA is pleased to be associated with the Precision Ag Vision Conference, which is bringing the players in this space together.”

“Our goal is for attendees to come away from this conference energized about the technologies and opportunities available in the precision agriculture field,” said Paul Schrimpf, Executive Editor, PrecisionAg Media®.

CAPA-member organizations and companies have been collaborating to create a ground-breaking event by brining together true decision makers and focusing on working together to take advantage of opportunities.  “We’re proud and pleased to receive CAPA’s support for the first Vision Conference,” Schrimpf said.

The PrecisionAg Vision Conference will provide a unique and valuable education and networking experience, bringing together some of the brightest agriculture leaders with technology and data experts from across the country to examine the big trends and technologies that will impact the ag industry over the next decade.
