Commodity Classic highlights latest in agriculture

Hundreds of exhibitors representing leading agribusiness decision-makers and representatives will showcase state-of-the-art products and technology at the 11th annual Commodity Classic March 1-3 in Tampa, Fla.

Corn, soybean and wheat growers from across the country will benefit from the latest information, equipment and products that can positively impact their bottom line.

“Bounty on the Bay” is the theme for the 2007 Commodity Classic — the combined convention and trade show of the American Soybean Association, the National Corn Growers Association, and the National Association of Wheat Growers. This is the first year for NAWG at the Commodity Classic.

“NAWG is excited to join Commodity Classic this year,” says Dale Schuler, NAWG president. “A combined meeting and trade show is a great opportunity for our growers and for corn and soybean growers. I encourage all growers to take advantage of the tremendous resources that will be available.”

In addition to the trade show, Commodity Classic will offer a wide range of educational sessions. Participants will hear experts discuss timely issues that can impact growers' profitability. There will also be a number of important networking opportunities throughout the event.

“Many of the latest products and services that can help to add value to farm operations will be on display at the trade show, and industry representatives will be available to answer specific questions,” says Rick Ostlie, ASA president.

“Commodity Classic brings together growers of the nation's top three crops — corn, soybeans and wheat — to learn from respected industry leaders and other growers about how to improve efficiency and profitability on the farm,” says Ken McCauley, NCGA president.
