Speakers

Scott Garvey
Machinery Writer

Presentation: The Next Generation of Autonomous Ag

Overview: Machinery writer Scott Garvey will be looking at the latest in autonomy developments in the agricultural sector. He'll be speaking to John Deere's program delivery manager for autonomy about the future of self-driving ag equipment. He'll also have a discussion with a representative from AGCO about the Fendt Xaver swarm robotics technology that may soon be commercially available. And he'll take a look at what self-driving developments have been made in other off- and on-road industry segments.

Profile: Scott Garvey, the former machinery editor for Grainews, is now a freelance writer and video producer, with almost two decades of experience writing about developments in the farm machinery and autonomous sectors. 


Nathan Gregg

Presentation: A Penny-Pincher's Guide to Seeding Efficiency

Overview: Nathan will draw on his experience as a farmer and former researcher with the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute to offer some practical tips that will put more dollars in farmers' hands. Incremental improvements in equipment performance, operational practices, fertility management and agronomy can all add up to more revenue for less cost. 

Profile: Nathan farms with his wife and mother near Paynton, SK. Prior to farming full-time, he spent nearly 17 years at the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute (PAMI) in Humboldt, SK. During his career there, he managed and completed many Research & Development projects, ranging from small-scale replicated testing to large-scale prototype development, and numerous agronomic and fertility field trials. Nathan has travelled internationally conducting machinery evaluations for several major equipment manufacturers, which offered opportunities to experience agriculture practices and perspectives in the US, Europe and Australia.

Nathan is a graduate from the College of Agriculture at the University of Saskatchewan, and is currently the President of the Herb, Spice and Specialty Agriculture (HSSA) association of Saskatchewan. Nathan and his wife have two young children that provide an endless source of energy and stories from ‘the farm’ to regale their teachers and day-care providers with!
