CropVillage update for February 12, 2009, What rural America needs from the stimulus package

Update for February 12th, 2009

We are seeing lighter turn out at ag trade shows. However, there is strong and continued interest (need?) to find and use information about trends, technology, and issues effecting the crop industry. Truffle Media is seeing increased discussion with trade associations and conference organizers to bring to their members information in a usable format. While the physical part of being at a conference or trade show can never be replaced, any way to conserve cash today is being investigated; getting information in a usable, digital, form will help keep information distribution costs low and still help producers.

FYI, currently at the 2009 National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ky. We will bring back conversations on technologies and national policies. Quick set of pictures at
