Even though 2020 is only a few months old, the year has already been one for the history books. Already facing such key issues as the trade dispute with China and lawsuits targeting crop protection products, the entire world is now dealing with the coronavirus pandemic and its effects.
To help those in the agricultural community stay informed on these and other developments, CropLife magazine, with sponsorship from UPL, will host a webinar in late April. This “state of the industry” will attempt to look at many of the key topics facing today’s ag industry and consider what paths might be followed by ag retailers and their grower-customers to successfully navigate this year’s challenging growing season.
Taking part in this webinar will be three industry experts: Amy Asmus, Co-Owner of Asmus Farm Supply, Rod Wells, an executive at GROWMARK and the acting Chairperson for the Agricultural Retailers Association, and Michael Gomes of Topcon.

Recent concerns over data sharing and use have put a spot light on the work the Agricultural Data Coalition (ADC) has been doing for the past few years. Many farmers likely have questions and concerns about what is happening with their data as planting season is rapidly approaching. To help shed light on these concerns, we have pulled together people from various parts of the ag data industry to share their expertise. This webinar will discuss what technologies like API’s are and what ag tech company partnership agreements generally mean for a farmer. We hope to give farmers a better understanding of points to consider when signing up with agriculture technology services so they are positioned to control their data in an ever changing marketplace.

Growers today have more options than ever before to secure needed crop inputs for the upcoming growing season. With current margins thinner than ever before, a crop input supplier must find a way to differentiate themselves on something other than price. Growers make many agronomic decisions throughout the year that will impact overall field or farm profitability, and most growers struggle to quantify impacts of these decisions.
This presentation will demonstrate how agronomic decisions impact the ROI of a field by using the data the growers collect today. How different is the conversation with the grower when you can show them ROI of your products instead of the price of your products? Let’s talk ROI instead of bags, gallons and tons!
