Another spring is quickly approaching and our team here at Sure Growth Technologies are on our feet quickly getting ready to help our growers do what they do best: Farm. We recently hosted our annual spring growers meeting on March 13th, 2015 at the Russell Inn Hotel & Conference Centre in Russell Manitoba.
The day was filled with excellent presentations from a variety of coaches across our Agri-Trend network. Sure Growth’s own, Terry Aberhart kicked off the meeting with our 2015 update to keep everyone in the loop as to what kind of cool things we’ll be up to this year and what we hope to bring to our clients and their farming operations. Terry’s presentation even touched on some of the neat features of the new Agri-Data App and how we hope you will all become accustomed to using it on your own farms too. Elston Solberg, the Director of Agri-Knowledge took some time to give us a presentation on Overcoming the Agronomic Limitations of Your Seeding Equipment. Dr. Geza Racz spoke on Sustainable Phosphorus Use and Product Efficiency and Matt Ramage gave us an excellent insight as to how they utilize precision farming practices in the United States and how we can use them here on our own farming operations. Matt Ramage, Elston Solberg, and Dr. Geza Racz then teamed up to give an excellent presentation on Floating & Fertilizer Efficiency. Bob Barton joined us to give us an outlook on the upcoming 2015 marketing season and Joerg Zimmerman lead us into supper time with a great presentation on Strategic Planning & Team Motivation to help give our growers some tips on growing their business. Once again, the Russell Inn’s catering team went above and beyond to bring us a delicious meal and Terry Aberhart gave an excellent presentation on his recent trip to Ethiopia with the Canadian Food Grains Bank. We hope that everyone in attendance was able to walk away with some fresh knowledge in his or her brains, as we know we sure did.
We would like to send special thanks out to our sponsors for the day: ATP Nutrition and a thank you to all of our growers, industry personnel, and Agri-Trend network who were able to make it to this meeting. We appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedules to join us. Do not forget to mark your calendars for Friday, July 24th, 2015 when we will be hosting our Annual Sure Growth Technologies field day. We wish everyone the best in the upcoming growing season and look forward to working with you all.
