InfoAg 2009 Conference set for July 14-16 in Illinois

Individuals interested in precision agriculture should mark their calendars for the next edition of the popular Information Agriculture Conference (InfoAg), set for July 14-16, 2009, at the Crowne Plaza in Springfield, Illinois. This is the same location as InfoAg 2007 and InfoAg 2005.

InfoAg 2009 will continue the tradition of bringing together the latest in precision farming, information management, and communication technologies, providing a forum for discussion and demonstration of what is working, what is new, and what is needed. It is an excellent forum for networking with others who are involved in implementing these systems in the field. The event is organized by the International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI) and the Foundation for Agronomic Research (FAR), with exhibits coordinated by CropLife Media Group.

InfoAg 2009 will present a wide range of educational and networking opportunities for manufacturers, practitioners, input suppliers, producers, Extension and NRCS personnel, and anyone interested in site-specific techniques and technology.

“Since the first conference in 1995, InfoAg has been a leading event in precision agriculture,” said Dr. Harold F. Reetz, Jr., Director of External Support and FAR. He is located at Monticello, Illinois, and may be contacted by telephone at (217) 762-2074.
