Innovation Stage Debuts at 2016 Outlook Conference

ARLINGTON, VA -- An exciting new addition to this year’s USA Rice Outlook Conference in Memphis next week is the “USA Rice Innovation Stage,” centrally-located in the conference Exhibit Hall.  Find the USA Rice booth and the Innovation Stage will be right behind it.  

The Outlook Conference is the largest conference in North America dedicated specifically to rice, and the Innovation Stage is where the crowd can go to hear about the latest and greatest technology and services on offer for the industry.

The Innovation Stage program will start each morning at 7:45 a.m. and be moderated by Forrest Laws, the director of content for Farm Press.

“Farmers are always looking for the next new idea that will help make their job easier or improve their bottom lines,” said Laws.  “We’re going to see a lot of exciting technology and services at the Innovation Stage this year and those sessions will be ‘must-attends’ for growers looking for a better way.”

The full schedule will be posted in the Outlook Conference Exhibit Hall, but attendees won’t want to miss presentations on Thursday with Central Life Sciences, Food Protection Services, FMC, CASEIH, Relevant Solutions, Arkansas Rice Research & Extension Center, BASF, Dow AgroSciences, and Creed Rice Company.  

Friday’s schedule includes presenters from Gowan USA, John Deere Company, Horizon Ag, ICL Specialty Fertilizers, Firstgrain, Valent USA Corporation, Thiele Technologies, Propane Education & Research Council, and Premier Grain Cleaner Company.
