COLUMBIA, Mo. – With its virtual format, this year’s Computers on the Farm conference, Feb. 8-9, will vividly underscore the increasingly vital role of computers in agriculture.

The annual event is aimed at users of all levels who are interested in on-farm applications of computer technology, Shannon says.

The opening session will look at the ins and outs of virtual conferencing. Other topics include precision ag and drones, farm taxes, social media and rural broadband.

Thirty-minute sessions will be held via Zoom beginning 6 p.m. on Feb. 8 and Feb. 9. The agenda includes breaks between sessions and time for questions and discussion.
