2018 Commodity Classic Highlights: Plenty to See, Hear, and Experience
By Eric Sfiligoj | Matthew J. Grassi| April 2, 2018
For the first time in almost a decade, attendees to the annual Commodity Classic trade show found themselves on America’s left coast, in Anaheim, CA. Over the course of this year’s three-day event — co-sponsored by the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), American Soybean Association (ASA), National Association of Wheat Growers, National Sorghum Producers, and Association of Equipment Manufacturers — almost 8,000 growers, ag retailers, and industry suppliers gathered at the Anaheim Convention Center to see and learn about everything the agricultural marketplace has to offer for the 2018 growing season….
In the Equipment Space
In addition to the crop protection/seed innovations, Commodity Classic attendees also saw various pieces of agricultural equipment both small and large. Definitely on the small side, size-wise at least, was the SpotOn Inversion Tester from Innoquest. Admitting that the time for this product was “probably two years ago,” President Bill Hughes said SpotOn can help applicators easily measure temperature inversions — one of the key issues last year with dicamba off-target complaints. “Many professionals recognize the difficulty in identifying the optimal time to spray since so many factors contribute to temperature inversions,” Hughes said. “The SpotOn Inversion Tester, which is collapsible and measures only a meter long, is convenient for applicators to use in the field. It works by being waved above the ground at 1 meter and 3 meters. If the air temperature is higher at 3 meters than at 1, there is an inversion present.”
