The first InfoAg Conference in 1995 was in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois. The most recent national/international conference, InfoAg 2003, was in Indianapolis.
“We’ve planned the 10th anniversary InfoAg program around the people who practice precision agriculture,” says Dr. Harold F. Reetz, Jr., FAR President, located at Monticello, Illinois. “That includes 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. For example, John Reifsteck of Illinois and Larkin Martin of Alabama…early adopters of precision ag on their farms…will discuss what they have learned.”
