Four concurrent tracks of breakout sessions begin Tuesday afternoon and run through Thursday morning. Each session brings expert speakers together to present their experience with precision ag. This year's breakout sessions cover the hardware and software, data and issues, news and perspective needed for success in precision agriculture.
