Combine corn heads, soybean headers, nitrogen applicators and crop sensors (see photo) are popular equipment buys today. If you are in the market for any of this equipment, come to the free Farm Industry News seminars held on three days of the show. Manufacturer representatives will discuss their companies’ equipment in each of these areas for show attendees.

The seminars are designed to help you understand the diverse products and the technology used by different manufacturers. This may help you narrow your search for the equipment you want to see at the show.

Scott McPheeters, a commercial farmer from Gothenburg, NE, will moderate the sessions. He has tested new equipment for Farm Industry News for many years. He will lead the discussions and help direct questions to keep the seminars relevant to commercial growers.

Cookies and coffee will be served at the seminars.
