On April 27, 2017, members of the Coalition to Advance Precision Agriculture participated in the Planting Technology Field Demo Day at Chip Bowling’s family farm in Charlotte Hall, Maryland. Held by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) and the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), the day featured demonstrations of modern planting equipment and promoted the importance of precision agriculture in the future of farming. Thirty-eight U.S. Environmental Protection Agency employees and five U.S. Department of Agriculture employees attended the field day, asking questions and engaging with specialists from the industry. A special thanks to AEM, ASTA and NCGA for organizing this great event.
