Event Description

Farmer results to be the highlighted at the Precision Agriculture Conference

The Potential of Precision Agriculture being turned into Real Profits

What are leading farmers doing when it comes to trying precision agriculture technologies and practices? How do early adopters feel about precision agriculture now that they have been experimenting for a few years? Have their yields changed? Have costs gone down? Is it worth the investment in equipment and time?

These answers and many more will be explored at the 2016 Farms.com Precision Agriculture Conference and Ag Tech Showcase being held February 2nd and 3rd at the Best Western Lamplighter Inn, London, Ontario.

“The conference will feature a number of expert speakers to share the latest precision agriculture advances with everyone attending , but with the theme of ‘Turning Precision Agriculture’s Potential into Profits,’ we felt it was important to highlight the experiences of farmers who are actually practicing precision agriculture,” says Farms.com Executive Vice President Joe Dales.

The Farms.com Precision Agriculture Conference will feature a number of thought-provoking panel discussions.

“What Precision Agriculture practices are working on my farm,” will be the theme for the popular farmer panel at the Conference. This panel will include farmers such as Bob Devolder, Rick Willemse and Wade Barnes from Farmer’s Edge to provide an overview of the experiences of Western Canadian farmers.

Another popular presentation panel will include world class precision agronomy speakers who will present research results on how new technologies including plant genetics, variable rate fertility, variable rate populations, multi-hybrid systems, soil science and precision weather are working.

Some of the world class speakers include: • Noah Freeman, Manager of Precision Agriculture Technologies, AgReliant Genetics (Pride Seeds) • Jason Webster, Innovation Lead, Beck’s Hybrids, Illinois. • Dale Cowan, Senior Agronomist, AGRIS Co-operative.

Precision Agriculture in the field

“We are excited about assembling this group of high calibre expert speakers, exhibitors, farmers and agronomists in one place at one time. The sharing, networking and learning will be very valuable and we know will help everyone involved to drive farm yields and profitability, ” says Dales.

Over 300 farmers, agronomists and agri industry professionals will attend this year’s precision agriculture conference which will include a trade show and networking social, as well featuring the latest precision agriculture equipment, software, and service providers.
