Steve Tucker will start the program off with a humorous look at “Managing Your Farm for the Future,” while Rudy Garcia will be the closing keynote bringing the two days of education into practical farm application. Chris Barron, CEO of AgView Solutions, will help attendees “Prioritize to Survive 2017” as the general keynote speaker both days.
Sponsored sessions include “Using an IPM Approach with Stored Grain Protection,” “Keeping More of Your Money,” “Sustainable Production,” “A New Vision for Farming on Limited Rainfall,” “Status and Management of Resistant Kochia,” “Increasing Yields using Equipment Technology,” and “Sunflower Production.”
Twenty sessions are repeated on Wednesday giving members the opportunity to see as many speakers as possible.
Don Lamker will help conference participants “Get Value from Farm Data,” Todd King will explore “New Gas Power Technology for Irrigation Wells,” UNL personnel will discuss “Pesticide Application Technologies,” and Jake Miller will talk about “Grazing Cropland.”
