Is the combine ready to roll? What extra parts should you have on hand? And are you ready to accept all that fresh data? The latest Farm Progress 365 virtual sessions – July 26, 27 and 28 – will dig into those topics in depth.
Farm Progress 365 is a new service providing farmers a growing library of useful information, and access to live events. A series of monthly seasonal sessions targets hot topics during the ag year and with harvest approaching, the next sessions are taking on that challenge.
