The InfoAg Conference
Now under management by The Fertilizer Institute, the InfoAg experience is expanding to cover a broader scope of information that crop advisors and retail agribusinesses can use to advance sustainability and their organization’s bottom line. The event features a tradeshow along with education sessions that address the challenges of the retail agronomist through precision ag, environmental stewardship, sustainability, and product innovation. The conference will equip attendees with actionable takeaways they can bring back to their businesses and customers.
InfoAg 2023’s expanded education offerings will focus on the following topics:
- Precision Agriculture: Presentations in this track will focus on the use of technologies to improve efficiencies, including monitoring soil and crop health, crop growth, and carbon estimates. Technologies include: remote sensing, drones, autonomy and robotics, blockchain, IoT, and more.
- Products Innovation: Presentations in this category are targeted towards showcasing the latest innovative products, including Enhanced Efficiency Fertilizers (EEFs), Biostimulants, genetics, beneficial insects, and other ag inputs, as well as how to evaluate this new spectrum of products and improve adoption.
- Sustainability/Environmental Stewardship: This education track will focus on the latest conservation practices, impact of 4Rs, Climate Smart Agriculture, carbon sequestration practices and carbon markets, and the use of technology to demonstrate environmental practices.
