The 2016 Commodity Classic runs today through Saturday in New Orleans, and will include sessions where farmers can learn how to improve their businesses and farming.

The Learning Center will focus on presentations aimed at exploring topics related to every aspect of farming and will complement other educational sessions at the Commodity Classic. Topics include tips for increasing yield, how the weather effects the commodity markets, and even how farmers can best organize their home office.

“Commodity Classic is all about helping farmers become even better at what they do,” Commodity Classic Co-Chair Wesley Spurlock said. “The quality, relevance and diversity of these Learning Center sessions is a direct result of the farmer-focused, farmer-driven focus at Commodity Classic. Farmers review the proposals for Learning Center sessions and select those that will have the greatest value and bottom-line impact for their colleagues who attend the event. We want farmers to leave Commodity Classic feeling better informed, inspired and energized.”

This year’s Commodity Classic is expected to welcome the largest crowd in the program’s 20-year history. It is the largest American, farmer-led, farmer-focused convention and trade show with support from National Corn Growers Association, American Soybean Association, National Association of Wheat Growers, National Sorghum Producers and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers.
