GRAND ISLAND, Neb. — Nebraska farmers will have the opportunity to discuss trends in technology with German farmers and agriculture experts in Grand Island on Sept. 11, 2017. The event, Smart Farming Technologies, is part of the Transatlantic Dialogue program organized by the German American Chambers of Commerce. The aim of the program is to bring German and American farmers and agriculture experts together to share information that might help them improve their operations and gain insights that might ultimately lead to a reduction in trade barriers.
Smart Farming Technologies will be held Monday, Sept. 11 from 4:00 p.m.–7:15 p.m. in the Raising Nebraska building on the grounds of the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island. The event is free and includes dinner after the panel discussions, but farmers interested in attending are encouraged to register online at gaccmidwest.org/en/smartfarm.
The first session will focus on how both nations use technology on the farm while the second examines how agriculture regulations impact transatlantic trade.
The Smart Farming Technologies roundtable is sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board, Nebraska Corn Board, Nebraska Wheat Board, Nebraska Cattlemen, Nebraska Farm Bureau and the Nebraska Department of Agriculture.
