National Sorghum Producers joins Commodity Classic in 2009

Commodity Classic, the tradeshow and convention of the U.S. corn, soybean and wheat producers, announces the National Sorghum Producers will be part of the annual event for agriculture when it meets in Grapevine, Texas, in 2009.

The 2009 Commodity Classic will be held Feb. 26-28 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center on Lake Grapevine in Grapevine, Texas.

“We are very excited to take part in Commodity Classic in 2009,” said NSP President Dale Murden. “We recognize that farmers grow diverse crops and Commodity Classic gives producers the opportunity to network and learn about corn, soybeans, wheat, and now sorghum all at the same time.”

Joint programming, crop-specific education, Learning Center sessions, What is New sessions, a General Session, and a large tradeshow with hundreds of booths highlighting equipment, products and services that are important to farmers are key Commodity Classic attractions for producers, their families and agribusiness partners.

“The National Sorghum Producers will work in conjunction with the other commodities to offer joint programming as well as sorghum-specific education and networking. An NSP-only meeting will be held either directly before or after the Classic,” Murden added.
