InfoAg Mid-South will be held Feb. 7-8 at the Mississippi State University’s Bost Extension Center in Starkville, Miss.
This regional conference is part of the popular InfoAg series, which for more than 10 years has been a leading source for information on technology in crop production.
It is sponsored by the Foundation for Agronomic Research, the Potash & Phosphate Institute, Mississippi State University Extension, Cotton Incorporated, and Mississippi Agriculture Consultants Association.
The conference will feature the latest in site-specific soil and crop management technology, information management, and communications for the needs of Mid-South farmers and rural communities.
The InfoAg Mid-South program will include presentations by leaders in the development and application of these technologies, as well as panels of regional farmers and consultants who will share their experiences.
Conference topics have been selected to target the specific interests of area producers and agribusinesses. Some highlights of this program include:
• Guidance and autosteer technology
• Precision pest management
• Yield monitors
• Variable-rate nutrient application
• GIS mapping
• Managing farm records
• Site-specific management

“We’ve created the InfoAg Mid-South program around the people who practice precision agriculture, including experts in precision agriculture, retailers who are incorporating the new technologies into their business, and producers using the hardware and software to make and implement cropping decisions,” says Harold Reetz, FAR president.
The conference offers a multi-track program with presentations and demonstrations to accommodate every level of technology know-how. “Whether you’re an early adaptor or just getting started, this conference offers valuable lessons to make precision pay,” says Reetz.
InfoAg Mid-South will cover information beneficial to agricultural producers, input suppliers, crop consultants and scouts, farm managers, those involved in agricultural academics and extension, and state and federal agricultural agents.
Exhibits and demonstrations will provide the opportunity to talk to the experts and see the latest agricultural technology developments first-hand, while company reps will be available to discuss product features and answer questions.
Full conference and one-day registrations options are available. Continuing education units will be awarded to certified crop advisers attending the conference.
