The event so many people in agriculture have been working toward is finally here: Farm Progress 2009. I am excited because it is my first farm show and what better first event than the “Super Bowl of Agriculture”? I am not quite sure what to expect, but my co-workers say it’s a blast. I DO hope that the “Yield’s of Tomorrow” tour and Social Media Booth (shameless plug), among other Monsanto exhibits are going to be a draw for attendees.
For those who may not be able to attend, you don’t have to miss out. During Farm Progress, a team of bloggers will be posting stories, pictures, and video on this blog as well as our Farm Progress blog. On the Farm Progress blog you can follow Troy, an agronomist, Whittney, a student at The Ohio State University, and Mike, a longtime employee and Decatur native, on their adventures during Farm Progress.
You can also check out what is going on at the show on Twitter with the hash tag #FPS09, or by going to the Monsanto Farm Progress website.
We are also asking for your input on what you want us to write about. What questions would you like us to ask farmers on your behalf? Let us know on our Facebook Page. We’ll post the responses on the blog and Facebook page later in the week.
