PrecisionAg professional innovation series workshop

PrecisionAg workshopThe PrecisionAg Professional Innovation Series features one-day conferences designed to explore the real opportunities, challenges, and pain points experienced by growers and precision agriculture integrators “on the ground,” with the two-pronged goal of providing deep-dive educational sessions and unmatched networking opportunities with the key thinkers and leaders in ag technology today. Three events held in 2015 and 2016 drew nearly 700 total attendees.
