Commodity Classic, Feb. 21-23, 2002, in Nashville, Tenn., will be an exceptional opportunity for soybean and corn producers to gather information and knowledge that will help them increase their profitability.

Based on individual interest, growers can choose sessions they want to attend from a two-day schedule of concurrent seminars. In addition, all growers will have the opportunity to attend a stand-alone session on the farm bill and one on marketing.

Commodity Classic, the Seventh Annual Convention and Trade Show of the American Soybean Association (ASA) and National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), provides numerous opportunities to learn, discuss hot topics, see new products, and network with other growers.

ASA President Bart Ruth from Rising City, Neb., said, “Farmers, agribusiness leaders and other key players in the agriculture sector come together at Commodity Classic to share a variety of valuable information about production, products and resources.”

NCGA President Tim Hume from Walsh, Colo., said, “With about 600 booths, the trade show is an excellent opportunity for growers to see a wide variety of equipment and products in one convenient location, making it easier to compare and ask questions.”

A special performance for attendees at the Grand Ole Opry House will provide an exciting entertainment highlight at Commodity Classic as Louise Mandrell and Riders In The Sky perform for the special “Evening of Entertainment.”

Commodity Classic is a perfect opportunity for growers to include their families and spend a few extra days enjoying the many activities in and around Nashville. Complete details and registration information are on the web at: www.commodityclassic.com, or call 636-928-3700.
