The Ag Data Conference is returning again this year to give farmers the knowledge and expertise when it comes to data management. 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.
This is the second year for the Ag Data Conference and it will once again be held in Coralville, Iowa (next to Iowa City). It is set for Wednesday, Nov. 29 and Thursday Nov. 30 at the Marriott Conference Center.
For Certified Crop Advisors, The Ag Data Conference will offer approved CEU credits during nine sessions. See our website’s Program page for details https://theagdataconference.com/program/
