Join Us for InfoAg 2014
InfoAg 2013 was a terrific success. Over 1100 participants shared in presentations on a wide range of topics on technology applications and data management and interpretation. As with previous InfoAg Conferences, the networking among participants was again a highlight of the experience. New relationships formed at InfoAg will lead to greater benefits and opportunities for those involved. Ideas exchanged in the hallways and the exhibit hall will form the basis for the new deliverables at the next conference. Those who took advantage of the Pre-Conference Tour on Monday picked up some additional first-hand knowledge and interactions.
We have had some excellent suggestions for speakers over the years. From hi-tech innovators giving us a glimpse of what is to come to producers putting all the gear and ideas to work in crop production, InfoAg is an event to stimulate the gray matter.
