Those who attend the academy will hear from a large panel of regional and national experts, have time for open discussion and round tables, and enjoy a complementary catered breakfast and lunch.

This large panel of experts include Tracy Intihar, assistant director of the Ohio Department of Agriculture; John Fulton, professor at College of Food, A and Bio Engineering at the Ohio State University; Jim Love, light robotics manager and herbicide specialist at Beck’s Hybrids; and many others.

“This free event is open to the entire public,” says Kent Holmes, marketing manager for Apple Farm Service. “Whether you farm thousands of acres or you’re a high school student just wanting to learn what precision agriculture is, you are all invited. The lineup of speakers and topics will bring new knowledge for everyone to take home.”

We understand that the future of agriculture will be done with precision applications.
