Industry Conference

2021ic Articleheader

From trade conditions to weather to a global pandemic, those working in agriculture never know what form a disruptor may take. But they have experienced, time and time again, that disruptors become a propelling force for change. A nimble agribusiness leader will seize the momentum of disruption to realize positive impact for their business – even if others fail to see the disruptor for the opportunity it is.

At the 2021 OABA Industry Conference, agribusiness professionals will address disruptors to the industry and learn to harness the momentum for change which they present.

Save the date! The Industry Conference will be held virtually January 27-29, 2021.  Included in conference registration is the Safety & Risk Management Day on February 3. 

Topics include:

Economic Outlook | Insects | Soil Health | Political Impact Outlook | Export Markets | Precision Planting | Hemp | Sulfur & Potassium | N Economics | Water Hemp | Eastern Corn Market | Ethanol Outlook | Meat Processing Industry & Demand | Customer Focus (farmer panel) International Trade & Policy | Disruptors in the Grain World


Registration for the 2021 OABA Industry Conference is $150 per person and grants participants access to all sessions during the conference and on-demand sessions up to 90 days after the event, as well as the Safety & Risk Management Day on February 3.
