What Corn, Soybean and Wheat Farmers Learned at Commodity Classic

Thousands gathered last week in Anaheim, CA, for the 2010 Commodity Classic. CSD staff members were on hand to bring you the newest information and let you in on what they learned while attending the four-day event.

Attendees took in session covering a variety of topics, including: weeds and insects, plant breeding, biotechnology, global food security and more. But, it wasn’t all work and no play. John Deere and legendary automotive designer Chip Foose (also designer on the TV show Overhaulin’) paired to pimp out an old JD 4020 tractor and unveiled it at the 2010 Commodity Classic.
