Source: Iowa Soybean Association news release

Patrick Reeg has been named director of On-Farm Network® for the Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) Research Group.
As a member of the ISA Research Leadership Team, Reeg provides strategic and tactical leadership to the On-Farm Network team and serves as the point of contact with ISA staff, research advisory council and ISA board members; as well as ISA partners, collaborators and farmer stakeholders.

"Pat has contributed a great deal to the success of the On-Farm Network and to our efforts to build closer integration and partnership within ISA and with our farmer, industry and university partners," said Ed Anderson, ISA senior director of supply and production systems. "I am confident that Pat will apply great vision, expertise and passion in leading our On-Farm Network team in conducting and communicating collaborative work that will improve soybean farmers' productivity."

Reeg grew up near Bellevue, raising crops and livestock with his family on their Century Farm. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Business and a Master of Science degree in Agronomy from Iowa State University.

Prior to joining ISA in 2005, Reeg was the precision farming specialist with AgVantage FS, Inc. He is a Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) and past chair of the Iowa CCA board. Most recently, Reeg served as ISA operations manager - agronomic research for the On-Farm Network.

"I am extremely excited to have such an incredible opportunity with the Iowa Soybean Association and look forward to serving the research needs of Iowa soybean farmers as On-Farm Network director," said Reeg.

"The volume of data farmers can collect on their fields continues to increase with advancing precision agriculture technologies. The On-Farm Network continues to be a valuable unbiased resource in filtering through this data to help farmers make important decisions related to profitability and the environment."

The On-Farm Network will host its annual conference in Ames Feb. 19-20. Featured topics include managing herbicide resistant weeds, unmanned aerial vehicles, cover crops, planting rates, high-yield management for soybeans and what's new in precision ag tools.

In addition, Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey will provide a progress update on the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy and farmer and landowner responsibilities regarding this historical effort to improve environmental performance.

The On-Farm Network conference is presented by the Iowa Soybean Association. Registration cost is $100. Online registration closes Feb. 14, but walk-ins will be welcomed.

Registration fees are waived for 2013 On-Farm Network program participants. The student fee is $35. Continuing Education Units for certified crop advisors will be available for all conference sessions.
