SPRINGFIELD, Illinois (January 28, 2019) –BRANDT has a full line up of events scheduled at this year’s Commodity Classic, which will give growers a first-hand look at new emerging plant health technologies and the opportunity to learn more about Randy Dowdy and David Hula’s Next Level Farm Camps taking place throughout the Midwest and Southeast in 2019.

BRANDT will kick off the show on Thursday, February 28th with a special meet and greet with NASCAR Xfinity Driver Justin Allgaier, who will be in the booth (#2961) from Noon-3pm along with the BRANDT #7 Chevy show car.

On Friday, March 1st BRANDT will host special guests Randy Dowdy and David Hula in the booth from Noon-2pm. The pair will be on hand to answer questions and provide information on their new endeavor – Next Level farm camps – which are taking place throughout the Midwest and Southeast. The Next Level program is a series of intensive grower education workshops led by Dowdy and Hula that provide valuable insights on proven methods and techniques for improving yield and ROI. Growers receive 8 days of education per year, as well as access to proprietary software and a grower networking community to share knowledge and results.

Friday afternoon at 2:30pm, BRANDT’s Director of Discovery and Innovation, Brian Haschemeyer, and Agronomy Manager, Ed Corrigan, will be discussing the company’s new enzyme technology at the show’s What’s New Session (West Concourse, Room W206B). This patented technology is a breakthrough scientific advancement in the enzyme category and has been showing yield bumps of up to 18 bu/ac on corn in Midwest field trials. The product helps boost water and nutrient uptake, improve plant and root health, and helps improve drought tolerance.
