Integrating High Tech Farming and Conservation

Traditionally, the relationship between maximizing profits and providing critical wildlife habitat can feel like a juggling act for farmers. Luckily, attendees of National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic will have the opportunity to learn about new technology that changes the paradigm for farming and wildlife habitat.. On Friday, February 14th, the Precision Ag Workshop: Farm Forward, presented by John Deere, will be taking place at the Minneapolis Convention Center from 10am – 4:30pm.


Host Chip Flory from AgriTalk will guide registrants through this educational and inspirational workshop aiming to provide a better understanding of the Precision Ag program and help farmers boost the bottom line. Farmers, integrated solution specialists, agronomists and conservationists can look forward to a robust agenda that includes: Keynote speaker Matt Olson, Tactical Marketing Manager of John Deere’s Precision Ag Program, an Integrated Solution Specialist Panel, a Farmer Panel, a variety of interactive breakout sessions, the presentation of the 2020 Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever Precision Farmer of the Year, and more!
