The Kansas Ag Research and Technology Association (KARTA) and K-State Research and Extension are wrapping up plans for the 20th Annual Agricultural Technologies Conference, taking place January 19-20, 2017 in Junction City, Kansas! This annual event brings hundreds of agricultural producers and industry leaders for a 2-day event focused on the use of technology in the ever-changing agriculture industry. One of the presentations on the jam-packed schedule will be a “Rapid Fire Session” with multiple members of the KSU faculty, including Anita Dille, Ignacio Ciampitti, Brian McCornack, Ajay Sharda, Terry Griffin, and Lucas Haag. They will update the group on their latest research, the trends they see coming in Precision Ag, and technologies trending with their students.
The conference also includes a number of vendor displays, the KARTA Annual Meeting, research presentations from grant recipients, and an interactive evening discussion that is always an attendee favorite. View the complete conference schedule
