Several educational and marketing sessions and a trade show await corn, soybean and wheat growers at Commodity Classic, the annual convention and trade show of the American Soybean Association (ASA), the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), and the National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG), to be held Feb. 28-March 1 in Nashville, TN.

Commodity Classic will give producers the opportunity to attend 11 Learning Center sessions and three Early Riser marketing sessions and learn about issues such as biofuels, technology and trade.

“Producers have every opportunity to learn the best methods for improving productivity on their farms with so many Learning Centers and Early Riser marketing sessions available,” says NCGA President Ron Litterer.

Sessions include:
• Take Charge of Your Farm’s Future
• Production Research – What’s on the Horizon?
• Wind Energy: Another Cash Crop, Capitalizing on Wind Energy Development in Rural America
• Farm Bill Update: What’s the Future Hold?
• Reduce Your Input Costs and Increase Return on Investment

“Commodity Classic is a great educational opportunity for producers in addition to being a great time,” says NAWG President John Thaemert.

With more than 213 exhibitors at the trade show, producers have the ability to network with key agribusiness leaders and other growers.

“There is no better place than Commodity Classic to learn so much about so many new products and technologies,” says ASA President John Hoffman.

Commodity Classic will also feature association banquets, entertainment events and important networking opportunities. For more information or to register, please visit
