Willoughby, Ohio – August 10, 2016 – The Coalition to Advance Precision Agriculture (CAPA), comprised of trade associations and organizations representing a diverse range of sectors within the agriculture industry, has announced its official support and endorsement of the first-ever PrecisionAg Vision Conference to be held October 18-20, 2016, in Phoenix, AZ.
“Precision is at the intersection of so many issues we’re facing in agriculture today – efficient use of nutrients and making sure those nutrients stay put, minimizing spray drift, helping farmers maximize efficiency, scouting from unmanned aerial vehicles, and so on,” said Daren Coppock, CAPA Co-chair and President & CEO, Agricultural Retailers Association. “People are amazed when they learn what’s being done on today’s modern agricultural landscape thanks to precision agriculture. And with technology developing at a very rapid rate, CAPA is pleased to be associated with the Precision Ag Vision Conference, which is bringing the players in this space together.”
The PrecisionAg Vision Conference has been designed to bring the true decision makers together to learn how big industries can work together to take advantage of the opportunities. “Our goal is for attendees to come away from this conference energized about the technologies and opportunities available in the precision agriculture field,” said Paul Schrimpf, Executive Editor, PrecisionAg Media.
Representatives of CAPA-member organizations and companies have worked with PrecisionAg Media to help shape the agenda of the Vision Conference and to participate in this ground-breaking event. “We’re proud and pleased to receive CAPA’s support for the first Vision Conference,” Schrimpf said.
The PrecisionAg Vision Conference will provide a unique and valuable education and networking experience, bringing together some of the brightest agriculture leaders with technology and data experts from across the country to examine the big trends and technologies that will impact the ag industry over the next decade.
