• • • Precision Planting Hosts First Events at New Farm
Precision Planting began hosting farmers at the company’s new Precision Technology Institute near Pontiac, Illinois last month. Small groups of farmers have been invited to attend field shows at the farm throughout the remainder of the growing season.
The company announced the acquisition of the Illinois farm at their 2018 Winter Meetings in January. Since then, Commercial Agronomist Jason Webster and his team have been managing several corn and soybean studies at the site. There are more than 50 test plots on the 200-acre farm.
Precision Planting expects more than 1,500 farmers to tour their experimental plots this season. At each event agronomists and product specialists are leading small groups through field trials.
