Get a Jump on 2010

Four-city 'road show' offers farmers a chance for last-minute information ahead of the 2010 crop year. Plan now to attend a meeting near you.

aking control of the weeds, insects and diseases that can plague your crop takes management and input. After the winter of 2009, farmers can use all the information they can get their hands on.

Farm Progress is launching the Profit Robbers Road Show providing you a chance to hear from top experts first-hand about a wide range of topics just ahead of planting 2010. The events are sponsored by Syngenta Crop Protection.

The four-event series features Arlan Suderman, market analyst, Farm Progress helping growers firm up risk management plans for the 2010 season. In each location, we'll have local experts on hand to deal with weed resistance, crop production and disease management issues. Scroll down to check out the events and speakers for each of the four locations - Quad Cities; Bismarck, ND; Great Falls, Mont.; and Ames, Iowa.

Each event ends with a panel discussion with all the speakers along with experts from Syngenta Crop Protection.
