TREMONT, Ill. — Precision Planting’s 2013 Summer Corn Conference will feature full-day sessions at which high-yield growers and agronomists can learn about the latest developments and technologies that lead to the best possible yields.

The conference will run Aug. 6-9 at the Precision Planting operation in Tremont. Each day will consist of sessions that focus on field scouting, row cleaners and closing systems, down force and population management and in-cab technologies.

As in previous summer conferences, attendees will get hands-on field explanations of planting errors and their impact, see planters in action and watch demonstrations of cutting-edge planting and monitoring technologies. There will be a special presentation of the improved accuracy of the new YieldSense harvest monitor.

All sessions are geared toward giving growers information they can use in their own operations to improve decision-making and boost yields.

Admission is free, but spaces are limited, and advance registration is required. For more information and to register for a specific date, phone (800) 660-9573 or visit
