Multi-Hybrid Corn Planting allows for the implementation of changing corn hybrids while planting, precisely placing each corn hybrid specific to individual site specific management zones. This presentation will discuss the advantages of multi-hybrid corn planting, as well as the components/equipment/technology needed to succeed with this planting concept.

With over fifteen years of experience, NORAC is a pioneer with ultrasonic technology in agriculture. NORAC offers three Spray Height Control systems that can be installed on most sprayer models; the UC4+ and UC4.5 come complete with a stand-alone control panel and the UC5 is an ISOBUS system that can be operated through a variety of existing control panels. NORAC?s Spray Height Control systems use ultrasonic sensors mounted on the left, right and center sections of the boom to monitor field terrain and make responsive boom height adjustments. With NORAC Spray Height Control systems, the boom automatically follows the contours of the land and maintains a preset height above the ground or the top of the crop allowing more effective chemical use and stress free spraying for the operator. Hybrid Mode, the new advanced crop sensing feature for in-crop spraying, eliminates the need for the operator to take manual control of the boom while spraying in row crops or adverse situations such as lodged, thin and uneven crop. Together with Soil Mode and Crop Mode, NORAC provides the boom stability and spray height accuracy you can trust in all field conditions. Guaranteed.
Join Us for InfoAg 2014
InfoAg 2013 was a terrific success. Over 1100 participants shared in presentations on a wide range of topics on technology applications and data management and interpretation. As with previous InfoAg Conferences, the networking among participants was again a highlight of the experience. New relationships formed at InfoAg will lead to greater benefits and opportunities for those involved. Ideas exchanged in the hallways and the exhibit hall will form the basis for the new deliverables at the next conference. Those who took advantage of the Pre-Conference Tour on Monday picked up some additional first-hand knowledge and interactions.
We have had some excellent suggestions for speakers over the years. From hi-tech innovators giving us a glimpse of what is to come to producers putting all the gear and ideas to work in crop production, InfoAg is an event to stimulate the gray matter. Help shape the program for InfoAg 2014 by suggesting a speaker or topic

Over 200 research presentations will cover the application of new technologies as well as the theoretical studies that introduce us to the technologies of the future. An A to Z track focuses on practical application of technologies and presentations by leading precision ag vendors. The conference boasts an international exhibit hall and plenty of opportunity to network with representatives from over 40 countries. It's the cheapest round the world tour of precision ag available in 2014.
SOILMAP Desktop is a web application designed to process the data and information gathered through soil sampling of your fields. The software is then used by the SOILMAP team and your agronomists to determine fertilizer recommendations. Additionally, SOILMAP software allows you to plan (chemicals, fertilizers, seed), create cost comparisons, acquire history reports and determine blendsheets. Other capabilities include soil-type books, seed population maps and farm maps. We are currently integrated with a number of accounting programs to facilitate greater accuracy and efficiency with the accounting program you utilize. We are also integrated with Murray and Kahler automated blenders.
With SOILMAP software, you?re able to gain valuable insight into the needs and capabilities of your fields that will, in turn, assist you in making the best possible management decisions in the effort to maximize your return on investment.
