St. Charles, IL - A new 10-minute video featuring ag editors Willie Vogt, Farm Progress editorial director, and Holly Spangler, executive editor of Prairie Farmer, offers an editorial perspective on can't-miss moments and hot topics at this year's Farm Progress Show 2021. Vogt and Spangler discuss the stories and news they are watching and covering, as well as share the new product introductions, technology features, demos and other solutions they anticipate making the biggest impact with farmers when the show reconvenes in-person in Decatur, Ill., Aug. 31-Sept. 2.

"Farmers come to Farm Progress Show to get answers to the burning questions that are bugging them about their operations," said Vogt. "They're facing any number of challenges on the farm, but there are tons of opportunities for them in the coming year, too."

"There will be something - probably a few things - at the Farm Progress Show that farmers have never seen before," said Spangler. "The show exists for farmers to get a look at new solutions, technology and products, and consider what could work well for their operation. Farmers have an opportunity to see just about everything they might think of adding to the farm next year."

Vogt and Spangler also discuss a likely hot topic at this year's show - supply chain challenges and related pricing impacts.

"It seems that every company is scrambling to address these issues," said Vogt. "If farmers have questions about the supply chain or product availability - whether crop protection or equipment - this is the place to ask tough questions to your suppliers."

"It's time to be planning for planting," said Spangler. "It's not too early to be asking questions about available planter parts, or working with your dealer. This is the place to come get those answers."

Watch the video online to hear more from Vogt and Spangler, including their discussion around ethanol uses, farm data and supply chain shortages. Stop by the ADM Stage, Prairie Farmer Hospitality Building, Lot 643, at Farm Progress Show, either day from 11-11:30 a.m. CT, to meet the Farm Progress editors. From Tech to Food Policy, Willie Vogt covers a wide range of ag topics as editorial director at Farm Progress. As editor of Prairie Farmer magazine, Holly Spangler brings meaningful production agriculture experience to the topics she covers, including a variety of production, management and issue-oriented stories.
