Raymond Szabada, Founder and Chairman of the Board of SRCTec, encourages everyone in the agricultural sector, including AG Tech and local industry players, to attend.

“There is a surprising and extremely sophisticated level of new technology with huge benefits to ag growers and producers. This event will showcase the newest innovations in the agri-tech industry, as well as providing learning and networking opportunities,” Szabada said.
