The American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers is making sure that those interested in the wide topics of agriculture, energy and policy consider attending the Agronomics Vision for 2016 and 86th Annual Meeting plus Trade Show of the society.
What is important is that early-bird registration pricing expires Oct. 3.
The following information was distributed by ASFMRA in an e-mail the end of last week to inspire registration, and AgProfessional wants to assist in reminding its readers to consider attending the San Antonio, Texas, event.
