Hear from the following speakers:

Brian Grete is an expert on risk management and commodity analysis. With Pro Farmer since 1996, he has served as senior market analyst and Pro Farmer editor. Brian's reporting focuses on news and events that influence commodity markets and how that translates to risk management for your farming operation.

Christopher Kallal started his career with Monsanto as a summer intern in 1993 at the research farm in Jerseyville, Illinois and joined the team full time in 1999 as a sales representative, supporting both the seed and herbicide business.Chris grew up on a small family farm near Jerseyville and received his  B.S. in Agricultural Mechanization and a M.S. in Crop Sciences, both from the University of Illinois.

Farm Journal field agronomist Ken Ferrie oversees the test plots in the Farm Journal Field Test program. Ken applies his extensive, cutting-edge knowledge and his systems approach to farming to the plots. In addition to working with Farm Journal for 20-plus years, he operates an independent agronomic consulting business in central Illinois. A graduate of Illinois State University, Ken credits much of his knowledge of the systems approach to the late Dr. Everett Dennis, who took what Ken had learned in books and "brought it to life." A native of northeast Iowa, Ken has previous experience as a floater operator, crop scout, and maintenance manager over three elevators, coop manager and company agronomist. Ferrie is one of only a few completely independent agronomists in the United States. He is not an employee of any agribusiness company (including Farm Journal), and he doesn't sell anything, accept any commissions or have any hidden agendas.
