As we pull out of winter and gear up for spring, we can think back to the season of meetings. Many in the industry were able to meet or reacquaint in San Antonio in January. At state meetings people have gotten together to talk about what may be in store for the upcoming seasons, that of planting and growth.

These are times to put into practice that which was presented and discussed during the wintertime gatherings. What was it that impressed you from a meeting you attended? Was it an insight into seed treatment? Maybe a take on rotation or irrigation? Perhaps you've decided on a new economic or better management plan.

Inside there is information on a host of industry topics. Some stems from our staff's attendance at winter meetings, some from other sources. Whatever its start, I hope it helps each of you in the end.
