Once again it’s time for another Midwest Ag Industries Expo (MAGIE) and a chance to check out the latest advancements in crop application precision tools, sprayers and gadgets. MAGIE is always a great place to test and learn about the latest equipment geared for ag retailers, enjoy a bit of networking and get out of the office and visit with industry partners.

Although website registration is closed, you can still register and sign in on the day of the event. As in years past, MAGIE will be held in Bloomington, Ill. The event takes place Wednesday, Aug. 22 and Thursday, Aug. 23.

Fun events include a MAGIE tailgate party on Wednesday from 3:45 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the MAGIE food tent. MAGIE attendees can stay for chicken wings, refreshments and prizes.

HAZWOPER Refresher Training will also be taking place, Thursday, Aug. 23 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Expo Building A. Call Asmark Institute at (270) 926-4600 to register.

The National Agronomic Health & Safety School is holding its safety school starting Tuesday, Aug. 21 through noon on Wednesday, Aug. 22 at the Asmark Training Center. Great topics are presented at the safety school every year, and this year is no exception. Topics for this year include, “Building a Safety Culture,” ammonium nitrate regulations, OSHA topics, risk management plans, NPDES permits, container containment, electrical hazards and trailers and hitches.

A section on Washington, D.C., perspectives will showcase three speakers: Richard Gupton, vice president of legislative policy, Agricultural Retailers Association; Michael Leggett, senior director, environmental policy, CropLife America; and Pam Guffain, vice president, member services, The Fertilizer Institute.

Like many years, AgProfessional will have a booth at the MAGIE show. Rich Keller, editor, and Rick Patton, publisher, will be at the event. Stop by and sign up to receive our weekly e-newsletters.
