InfoAg Northwest will be held Feb. 20-21, at the Three Rivers Convention Center, in Kennewick, Wash. This premier regional conference is part of the popular InfoAg series, which celebrates more than 10 years as a leading source for information on technology in crop production.

Sponsored by the Foundation for Agronomic Research (FAR), the Potash & Phosphate Institute (PPI), Washington State University, and Far West Agribusiness Association, in conjunction with AGCO, John Deere, Simplot, and Wilbur-Ellis, the conference will feature the latest in site-specific soil and crop management technology, information management, and communications for the needs of Northwest farmers and rural communities.

The conference program offers three program tracks to address the diverse interests of the Northwest region - Dryland Systems, Irrigated Row Crops, and Tree Fruit and Vine. InfoAg Northwest will include presentations by leaders in the development and application of the latest technologies, as well as a panel of farmers to represent each of the three farming systems who will share their precision experiences.

Conference topics have been selected to target the specific interests of area producers and agribusinesses.

Precision agriculture

“We’ve created the InfoAg Northwest program around the people who practice precision agriculture,” says Harold Reetz, FAR president, “including experts in precision agriculture, retailers who are incorporating the new technologies into their business, and producers using the hardware and software to make and implement cropping decisions.”

Presentations and demonstrations have been selected to accommodate every level of technology know-how. “Whether you’re an early adaptor or just getting started, this conference offers valuable lessons to make precision pay,” says Reetz.

InfoAg Northwest will cover information beneficial to agricultural producers, input suppliers, crop consultants and scouts, farm managers, those involved in agricultural academics and extension, and state and federal agricultural agents.

Exhibits and demonstrations will provide the opportunity to talk to the experts and see the latest agricultural technology developments first-hand, while company reps will be available to discuss product features and answer questions.

Full conference and one-day registrations options are available. Continuing education units (CEUs) will be awarded to Certified Crop Advisers (CCAs) attending the conference.
