StepUP 2021 Case IH steps up again as major sponsor of sugarcane conference

Sugarcane industry representatives will gather in Bundaberg in February 2021 for a major conference focused on the latest innovations, technology and research to help cane farmers

The Case IH Step UP! Conference will be held in Bundaberg from February 9 to 10, 2021, with a line-up of guest speakers and field trips for participants. The conference will culminate in a gala dinner at the Kalki Moon Distillery.

Andrew Kissel, Case IH ANZ’s Product Manager for Planting and Soil Management Equipment and Product Specialist for Patriot Sprayers, will be one of the conference guest speakers, outlining developments and ongoing advances in ag machinery technology. More…
