Saskatoon, SK., March 25, 2021 – Farmers attending the first Ag in Motion digital event in 2021 on March 24 received tips on many aspects related to the spring planting theme.
“Yesterday’s sessions included a wide assortment of topics from seeding varieties and storage, practical tips for setting up your seeder more efficiently, a current markets update, on-farm smart devices, plus a session on autonomous ag,” says Lynda Tityk, Executive Vice-President of Glacier FarmMedia.
Tityk notes that farmers who missed the March 24 digital event launch of Planting Kick Off – Profiting Through Incremental Gains can still register and view the sessions to learn about small changes that can improve their bottom line.
The Ag in Motion Planting Kick Off highlights include:
Farmers register once for Ag in Motion’s Digital Pass and get access to themed digital event days in 2021 on topics around planting, growing, research, livestock, harvest and innovation. Presentations and on-demand content will be available until December 31, 2021.
Those who register also get first notification of exclusive on-demand content and pop-up events when they occur throughout the year. The Ag in Motion Digital Pass also gives farmers exclusive access to special offers and discounts from the event sponsors.
On digital event days, farmers, speakers and industry reps can gather in the new virtual Coffee Shop at small virtual tables to catch up through video chat. Many questions about seed varieties, seeding equipment, markets and more were discussed in yesterday’s Coffee Shop video chats and through the sessions’ live chat discussions.
With the challenges of getting together in person in 2021, Tityk says that Ag in Motion organizers wanted to give farmers and industry an alternate way to connect online, while bringing timely information to farmers throughout the year when they are making decisions on the farm.
