Top 5 reasons to attend next week’s Ag Data Conference

Tom McGraw_5845
Have you been collecting data? Now you are wondering, what to do with it and what it means? Experts at the Ag Data Conference have the answers.

I know this harvest season has been one of those never-ending sagas, but soon you’ll have a chance to relax with family and be grateful for a bountiful and safe harvest during the Thanksgiving holiday.

Right about the time turkey leftovers have run their course, it’s time to grab some farmer buddies, or a trusted farm advisor, and head to eastern Iowa. Why? Because Corn+Soybean Digest and Farm Futures brands have built a great 1.5-day lineup of data and technology sessions around our theme: “Practical data and technology for profitable decisions.” All presentations and farmer/advisor panels are designed to give you actionable take-home tips, as well as encouragement, to help make your ag data and precision technology pay.

So, what are the top 5 reasons to attend our second annual Ag Data Conference – held Wednesday, Nov. 29 and Thursday Nov. 30 at the Marriott Conference Center in Coralville, Iowa (next to Iowa City)?

  • Our sessions are filled with real “boots on the ground” data-passionate advisors and farmers ready to share their successful experience and knowledge to help you sort through your data and technology challenges to achieve greater efficiency and profit.
  • Like Thanksgiving’s food lineup, we deliver a bountiful variety of sessions – from topics like building a digital farm strategy and judging different farm software to tools that cut unprofitable acres, a look at
  • 2018 technology and beyond, how field research can drive profitable decisions, learning real value in soil health, optimizing variable-rate inputs, and much more.
  • Use cool phone-based technology during sessions to ask anonymous questions and gain audience insight into data and technology use.
  • Learn from in-depth conversations and hands-on experience with drones and the latest technology in our new Tech Zone and trade show.
  • Hobnob with our farm broadcaster celebrity Max Armstrong (of This Week in AgriBusiness TV fame) and other farmers during our popular Beer & Bull Session – where you get more chances to get those burning questions answered by all our speakers.
