January 28 - January 30
The FarmTech™ Foundation of Alberta is a registered not-for-profit society committed to agricultural extension, specifically crop production and farm management. The members of the Foundation are the same as the host groups of the FarmTech™ Conference: Alberta Canola, Alberta Pulse Growers, Alberta Barley, Alberta Wheat Commission, and the Alberta Seed Growers’ Association.
The FarmTech™ Conference planning committee consists of three representatives from each of the host groups. The representatives include farmer/directors from each organization and staff members.
The FarmTech™ education committee is responsible for selecting all speakers. The education committee is made up of members of the planning committee plus additional representatives from across industry and government. The education committee follows these guidelines for selecting topics:
• a balance of new technology, environmental issues, agronomy and farm management topics
• a blend of big picture sessions and practical information that can be immediately put into practice
• a mixture of speakers including researchers, agronomists, farmers, and other professionals
The tradeshow is not open to the public. Only registered FarmTech™ delegates & exhibitors will be able to enter the tradeshow.
