After a canceled in person meeting last year, we were happy to welcome customers in person at our booth at the 2021 American Society of Agronomy (ASA), the Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), and Soil Science Society of America (SSSA) Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City this year.


Each year the ASA, CSSA, and SSSA host a premier international meeting to bring together leading and emerging scientific leaders from industry, government agencies, and academic institutions who are all working to advance agronomic, crop, and soil sciences. It’s the premier opportunity for these scientific professionals to hear about the latest research, meet and learn from their peers, expand their knowledge base, and take advantage of networking opportunities to enhance their careers. 


Since the UN declared 2021 as the International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development, it was only fitting that the theme for the Societies Annual Meeting held November 7 – 10 was also the same. This theme ties to research, education, outreach, and food production undertaken by the members of all three professional societies. This work has empowered a proliferation of new tools, data, and innovations that can increase the amount of safe, nutritious food grown while increasing numerous positive impacts on soils and the environment. These tools will allow production increases without further damage to natural ecosystems while providing both large and small-holder farmers with new options to reduce the problematic manual labor associated with farming and that make farming a more flexible, stable enterprise.

This theme encouraged new ideas for food, feed, fuel and fiber production, and natural resources protection. As such, for this event, the Societies encouraged radical ideas and proposed paradigm changes that may make leaps in our progress towards a sustainable world agriculture economy. Additionally, the theme prompted out-of-the-box solutions to the agriculture sector's problems as we continue to provide sufficient, safe, and nutritious food to a growing global population while faced with mounting environmental and resource constraints.

The world-class exhibition at the event housed displays of the latest scientific equipment, supplies, and services. WINTERSTEIGER was pleased to once again participate in this important event and not only have a Row Motion electric drive plot drill on display, but also a Quantum Plot Combine, and other laboratory equipment on hand. Both the plot drill and combine are uniquely positioned to drive sustainable agricultural practices efficiently and economically into the future. The depth and breadth of the products displayed in the WINTERSTEIGER booth solidified that WINTERSTEIGER offers complete solutions for the entire sowing and seed cultivation process. Thereby cementing WINTERSTEIGER’s position as a "one-stop-shop" to provide customers with everything they need from a single source.

This Meeting is one of the few gatherings that bring together thousands of scientific leaders from industry, government agencies, and academic institutions in one environment. We’re excited to work together with other participants from the 2021 Annual Meeting to help turn strategies into actions and actions into impacts.
