This ZimmCast comes to you from the 25th annual Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) conference and expo in Phoenix. Chuck interviews ARA communications director Brian Reuwee, provides comments from BASF and Monsanto representatives about dicamba in 2018, and shares the comments of ARA's retailer of the year award winners.
Brian was actually the subject of the ZimmCast at this time in 2014, back in Chuck's Google glass phase. This is the fourth year that ZimmComm has attended the ARA conference to produce content, especially photos, and this year we also shot board and staff photos for the organization - a new service we have been offering lately.
We want to thank our podcast sponsor since 2011, GROWMARK, locally owned, globally strong.
In this week's program Chuck introduces Jamie who conducted NAFB Convention, Trade Talk booth interview with Mike Krull, FMC, regarding the completion of the FMC/Dupont deal and also Jim Lappin, AMVAC, about their new products.
We hope you enjoy it and thank you for listening.
At the start of the annual National Association of Farm Broadcasting convention Chuck, Cindy and Jamie got together to talk about how long they've been attending the meetings, how Jamie joined the team and then they share a featured interview with Paul Spooner, USFRA, who talks about his job doing communications work for the organization.
The team will be on location throughout the meeting, taking photos, doing interviews and sharing them on AgNewsWire in a virtual newsroom.
