Successful Farming, the well-known and most-respected media brand serving the information needs of rural and farm families, will be the exclusive media sponsor of the 2017 Iowa Ag Summit, it was announced today.

"The Successful Farming brand is built on more than 115 years of heritage," event organizer Bruce Rastetter said. "Farming is at the heart of everything Successful Farming and its multiple brands do, so it's just such a natural decision that we team up with them to communicate what the Iowa Ag Summit is all about before, during and after it takes place."

Rastetter said the Aug. 5 summit at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines will highlight trade, energy, sustainability, the environment, corporate mergers, the 2018 farm bill and other issues important to agriculture's future. Sponsored by Summit Agricultural Group, this year's event will serve as a focal point for state, regional, national and international officials to share unique perspectives on the diverse range of issues shaping modern agriculture.

It will include keynote speeches, panel discussions and agricultural exhibits, providing a platform for elected officials, public policy leaders, agri-business leaders and the public to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing today's agricultural industry.

Meredith Agrimedia serves as the umbrella brand for multiple properties, including Successful Farming, Living the Country Life magazine, Successful Farming at, Country Gardens and Ageless Iron Almanac. Successful Farming Radio airs on stations across the country and Living the Country Life Radio is one of the largest radio networks, airing twice a day and reaching an estimated 1.9 million listeners through more than 300 stations in 39 states.

"The Iowa Ag Summit has quickly earned a reputation as an informative and insightful forum to improve the agricultural industry and economy," said Scott Mortimer, vice president and Agrimedia group publisher. "Those topics touch and shape the lives of our readers, listeners and viewers. They expect us to deliver information that makes a difference in their lives. In this role as the Iowa Ag Summit's exclusive media sponsor, we'll do exactly that."

Rastetter and Summit Agricultural Group hosted the first-ever Iowa Ag Summit in March 2015, featuring one-on-one discussions on agriculture and economic issues with the field of presidential candidates.
