WICHITA - Policy, markets and weather. Arguably, these are the biggest off-farm factors influencing profitability to today's farmers, and all three will be addressed at the annual Kansas Commodity Classic, Feb. 21 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Wichita Airport Hotel (formerly the Wichita Airport Hilton).
Dale Rodman, Kansas Secretary of Agriculture, will kick off the day's program with an update on the department activities. Mike Smith, meteorologist and CEO of Wichita-based Weather Data Services will give a look into near and long-term weather.
Senator Jerry Moran is the event's featured speaker. He will address issues affecting agriculture in Congress. Farmers and the markets closely watch the USDA’s crop reports. Classic attendees will enjoy a panel discussion about USDA crop reports and the markets, featuring Joe Prusacki, USDA's Director of Statistics, and Arlan Suderman, grain analyst with Farm Futures magazine.
After enjoying the Commodity Classic Luncheon, growers will be treated to a quick moving, hard hitting afternoon session featuring commodity updates for wheat, grain sorghum and corn.
This annual convention of the Kansas wheat, corn and grain sorghum associations is free to growers, and represents an agenda packed with insight on state and national issues.
The Kansas Commodity Classic begins at 9 a.m. with registration beginning at 8 a.m. Sponsored by the Kansas Agriculture Network, Kansas Corn Growers Association, Kansas Association of Wheat Growers and Kansas Grain Sorghum Producers Association, the event is free to attend and includes a luncheon. Walk-in attendees are welcome, but pre-registration is encouraged by calling 866-759-4328 or register by e-mail
