The 11th annual Kansas Agricultural Technology Conference has adopted a three-day format for their upcoming meeting Jan. 23-25 at the Holiday Inn and Conference Center in Salina. The expanded format will accommodate the needs of both novice and veteran producers, as well as consultants, industry participants and others.
The conference is for those who want to use or are using precision agricultural concepts in their farming and other businesses, said Kansas State University agronomist Scott Staggenborg. Kansas State Research and Extension and the Kansas Agricultural Research Association are co-sponsoring the conference.
The first day is geared toward those who may be newer to site-specific technologies, and will feature speakers experienced in the technologies and "have a view to the future." The second day focuses on "pushing the envelope" of technology with glimpses of what is new and on the horizon.
The third and final day includes presentations by farmers who have had research conducted on their farms. The topics range from seeding rate studies to improving the accuracy of yield monitors.
The registration fee for the conference is $100 if paid by Jan. 15 and $125 after that date. Members of KARA receive a $50 discount. The fee covers conference materials, lunch on all three days and refreshments during breaks.
