KENTLAND, INDIANA (December 27, 2013) — Row crop farmers interested in improving yields and profitability braved the elements last week to attend the second annual East Coast Seed Ag Expo held December 10th at Dover Downs, Hotel and Casino at Dover, Delaware. East Coast Seed’s General Manager, Mark Davis said, “We were very pleased to have such great attendance in enthusiastic participation in our event. Nearly 150 producers from several surrounding states made their way through ice, sleet and snow to participate.”
The Expo event featured both indoor and outdoor vendor exhibits. More than 22 companies were present to share the latest in crop production techniques and innovations. Davis said, “It is very rewarding to get a group of customers together to share ideas, make connections and plan for progress for the crop year ahead.”
Attendees to the Expo learned more about AgVenture, Inc. with presentations from General Manager Dave Treinen and Business Development Director, Chuck Schneider. Intensive presentations were made by company and university experts on Palmer Amaranth management, seed treatments, soil health and seed traits. Certification credits were available to qualified professionals in attendance.
The following evening, the company held a second event in Pennsylvania at the Bird-In-Hand Family Restaurant. Customers were welcomed in for a meal and to meet and visit with AgVenture and East Coast Seed personnel.
