With several thousand people expected to participate in Commodity Classic in Charlotte, N.C., Feb. 27-March 1, corn and soybean growers will have a unique opportunity to network with top producers and industry leaders from throughout the United States.

They will hear the latest information about issues and concerns that affect their farming operation and agriculture in general.

Commodity Classic is the eighth annual convention and trade show of the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) and American Soybean Association.

"Commodity Classic is a great opportunity to network with other producers," said NCGA President Fred Yoder. "Growers will benefit from one-on-one conversations, group discussions, and interactions with producers and industry representatives."

Commodity Classic offers producers a valuable opportunity that occurs only once a year. It’s an opportunity that conveniently gives them access to a large number of agricultural businesses and organizations, as well as educational and learning seminars.

"Many top agribusiness leaders and industry experts attend Commodity Classic," said ASA President Dwain Ford. "They are there to share information with growers and help them increase the efficiency and profitability of their farm operations."

NASCAR team owner and former NFL coach Joe Gibbs will be the keynote speaker at the General Session. He’ll talk about the elements that contribute to teambuilding and success.
