“For 44 years, World Ag Expo has been the premier destination for agriculture equipment and technology,” said Jerry Sinift, International Agri-Center Chief Executive Officer. “The amount of information can be overwhelming. By concentrating our efforts on five core areas, we can increase awareness, help attendees plan their visit and enable them to stay abreast of trends.”

The 44th annual World Ag Expo 2011, Tools for Agri-Business, will run February 8-10 at the International Agri-Center show grounds in Tulare, Calif.
