Welcome to InfoAg

2015 marks the 20th Anniversary of InfoAg. From the 1995 conference at The Chancellor hotel in Champaign, Illinois where the attendees totaled about 800, InfoAg has grown, shrunk, moved across town, across state lines and called six venues home. This latest edition of the premier precision ag conference boasts its largest exhibit hall and sponsorship support. Attendence is predicted to set a new record as we settle into a second year in St. Louis. 

 

With all the changes in the conference the technology and the issues around precision agriculture also reflect the changes in the industry. As we take a look back over 20 years of innovation, we set a new baseline on what is possible with the technology and data analysis capabilities of today, and provide multiple visions of what may be possible in the next 20 years in one of the most dynamic industries on the planet.
