More than half of the 60-plus agricultural seminars held at World Ag Expo are now available for viewing online at worldagexpo.com.  

"World Ag Expo attendees visit the expo to learn about new products and technologies shaping the agricultural industry," said Lee Coito, World Ag Expo 2011 chairman. "Our seminars provide an opportunity for attendees who want in-depth information on trends in technology and government and viewpoints from other producers."

Eight categories of seminars were presented at expo in 2011: irrigation, general agriculture, international trade, beef production, health and wellness, hay and forage, dairy and safety and advocacy.

The online seminar selection includes:

International Trade Seminars - The Center for International Trade Development's international trade symposium is focused on preparing agriculturalists for the future in a global marketplace.

General Ag Seminars - Organized by World Ag Expo volunteers, the General Ag Seminars focus on air and water quality regulations.

Irrigation Seminars - Produced by the Irrigation Association. Efficient use of available water supplies has never been more important to agriculture.

Dairy Seminars - Western DairyBusiness magazine brings together some of the best speakers and analysts to provide insight into the latest dairy industry developments.

Beef Seminars - BEEF Magazine presents seminars on the changes in the industry and trends in the market to educate producers on many important issues facing the industry today.

Hay and Forage Seminars - Mycogen Seeds and Hay & Forage Grower Magazine present a special seminar series on hay, forage and silage.

Safety and Advocacy Seminars - A new five-part series of seminars on safety and advocacy presented by the California Farm Bureau and Farm Employers Labor Service.

Planning for World Ag Expo 2012 is already in the works. The 45th annual expo, scheduled for Feb. 14 - 16, 2012, and themed Growing World Agriculture, will once again introduce the most innovative and interesting ag products to the global community in an effort to provide solutions for farmers and ranchers looking for new technologies.
