Conference preview: Develop your game plan at the Innovation to Profit Marketplace

February 9, 2023 | Kriss Nelson

New to this year’s Iowa Soybean Association’s (ISA) Innovation to Profit Conference is an opportunity to meet with ISA staff at the Research Center for Farming Innovation’s (RCFI) Marketplace.

The RCFI Marketplace will be fully staffed with agronomists, researchers and analytics team members that can help producers implement an action plan for their operation to be more productive, profitable and sustainable in 2023 and beyond.

“This will be a chance to get to know the ISA staff and ask questions specific to a topic of research or conservation implementation - to get a one-on-one conversation started,” says Joe McClure, RCFI co-director of on-farm research.

After hearing research results and more during the conference breakout sessions, the RCFI staff will be conveniently in the conference room.

“Throughout the day, you can start to create a plan, and this will be a great place to connect with RCFI staff and experts to ask questions and to further hone your game plan before taking it to your farm,” says Joe McClure, RCFI co-director of on-farm research.
