THE CONCEPT

Located directly in front of the Gas City location, along State Road 22, our field plot features 9 trials that showcase the Case IH 2100 series planter with Precision Planting technology. Farmers will get to follow along throughout the growing season and then experience the results at a field day the end of July.
