The Farm Progress Show is the one of the biggest events in the country for agriculture. Every year, the event rotates between Boone, IA and Decatur, IL – the 2018 edition happened in Boone, IA between August 28-30. Spraytec had a booth with an outdoor trial plot, which allowed growers to see the difference between Spraytec products or a combination of them check – crops planted included corn, soybeans, and alfalfa. In addition to the booth and trial plot, Spraytec also had a demonstration of Fulltec vs conventional mix to show the differences in terms of drift.
Besides having the company booth, Spraytec also had the pleasure to host 25 people from a group that traveled from Brazil. It was a great experience as they had the opportunity to walk around the show, network with different people, and get to know about some traditions of American agriculture. Prior to and following the show, the group also had opportunities to visit growers, retailers, and coops to learn more about their different operations. We are looking forward to our next group that is coming in 2019 for the FPS, which this year will take place between August 27-29.
