Just shy of the record, this year’s Commodity Classic in Nashville, TN, had 3,896 growers and industry representatives seeing and hearing about what’s new with corn and soybeans. Educational sessions and the trade show provided information, technology and resources to help growers more successfully manage their operations.

This 7th annual Commodity Classic is a combined convention and trade show of the National Corn Growers Association and the American Soybean Association.
