Pioneer at Farm Progress Show


Pioneer will offer several special events at the Farm Progress Show this year. Highlights include a deep dive into nitrogen management with Encirca® services and Granular; Mark Licht, Iowa State University Extension, and Emerson Nafziger, University of Illinois Extension, will update show-goers on the status of corn and soybean crop development in Iowa and Illinois; Jason Mauck, Gaston, Indiana, farmer, will share tips he has gleaned over the years to make an operation run with machine-like efficiency; and insights from David Hula — NCGA world record-holder for corn yield.

Then Pioneer will attempt to break a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title. Magician Scott Tokar will perform the Farthest teleportation illusion by attempting to send his assistant from the Corteva Agriscience, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont, tent to the Pioneer tent, hopefully setting a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title in the process.

Plan to be at tent #634 for these key events and to talk with both regional and national experts. Speakers will be available immediately following their presentations for interviews.
