Ag Business & Crop Inc. is pleased to announce that Felix Weber, President of Ag Business & Crop Inc. is the first recipient of the Precision Ag Builders Award from the Farms.com Precision Ag Conference 2019.
The Builders Award is in recognition of those that are early cutting-edge entrepreneurs that embrace innovations that enhance the agricultural sector. This conference began 5 years ago in response to the growth occurring in the Precision Agriculture sector spurred by dramatic technological advances, and industry innovation. This year the 2019 Farms.com Precision Agriculture Conference & Ag Technology Showcase expanded to move to the London Convention Centre welcoming more than 450 attendees and expanding the tradeshow. The growth of this conference has increased networking opportunities for agri-businesses, farm retailers and farmers interested in how precision agriculture will impact their bottom line and productivity on their farm.
“I am grateful for the recognition of Farms.com and the Precision Ag Conference with this award. It is through the team work of valued collaborators such as Steve Redmond from Redmond Agronomic Services that we can continue to bring innovative products and services to the Agricultural sector in Ontario and across Canada. I am truly humbled by this recognition from my peers”.
