Ag Tech Expo to Be Held in Goodland
07/25/2018
 

Innovative technology is rapidly changing the Kansas agriculture industry, and the Kansas Department of Agriculture has partnered with Northwest Kansas Technical College, the Kansas Water Office and the Kansas Ag Research & Technology Association to host the first-ever Ag Tech Expo on Wednesday, August 29, in Goodland. The Ag Tech Expo is an effort to bring new technology into the hands of all levels of producers and showcase the latest agriculture technology products and services.

The Ag Tech Expo will be held at Northwest Tech from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in conjunction with the Water Tech Farm Field Day. Participants will have the opportunity to hear current updates from the Kansas Water Office and an overview of the technology farm at Northwest Kansas Technical College, as well as talk to producers who have implemented new technologies at different levels in their operation. In the afternoon, activities will be held at the technology farm to allow participants to see some of the technologies in use.

Experts from the agriculture technology industry and students from the precision agriculture technology program at Northwest Tech will be available to answer questions about the technology in use. The day will conclude with a benefit auction hosted by BigIron, with proceeds going to local FFA programs and the precision ag tech program at Northwest Tech.
