For the first time in its 14 year history, the InfoAg Conference is being held at the historic Union Station in St. Louis, instead of in Springfield, Illinois, and they have the largest number of attendees pre-registered and more registering on site. InfoAg continues to be the premier precision agriculture event for producers, consultants, and the crop production industry, featuring four tracks of concurrent sessions plus a workshop track.
Dr. Steve Phillips, Conference Chair and Director for the International Plant Nutrition Institute, welcomed attendees at the opening general session on Tuesday morning. I caught up with Steve during one of the snack breaks this afternoon and he says that after outgrowing their past location the move to the Gateway City still keeps them centrally located in the heart of the corn belt. He also noted that the conference is now an annual event instead of every two years. Interview with Steve Phillips, InfoAg Expo conference chairman
