Latin American customers will have two excellent opportunities to learn more about Great Plains in February 2014.
The first will be at the World Ag Expo 2014 in Tulare, California February 11-12. Great Plains Manufacturing will actually have two booths at the show. One booth will represent Great Plains Ag division (South Exhibits, Booth L4) and another will represent the companies Land Pride division (South Exhibits, Booth O20).
World Ag Expo is the world's largest annual agricultural exposition. More than 1,400 exhibitors display the latest in farm equipment, communications and technology on 2.6 million square feet of exhibit space. Free seminars focus on a variety of topics important to dairy producers, farmers, ranchers and agribusiness professionals.
The show originally named "Tulare's Field and Row Crop Equipment Show," was changed to World Ag Expo in 2001 due to the increasing number of international exhibitors and visitors. With its central California location, the show is a popular destination for Latin American customers. Jorge Ortega-Taveras, who handles Latin America Business Development for Great Plains International, will be greeting customers at the show.
Doors open at 9 a.m. every day and close on 5 p.m. Tuesday & Wednesday. The show ends Thursday at 4 p.m. The Great Plains Ag division booth will have the Turbo-Max® and Turbo-Chisel® representing the company’s vertical tillage line as well as a Disc-o-Vator for the conventional tillage line. Seeding equipment on stand will be a Yield-Pro® eight row rotating planter, 1205 model drill and 15’ drill with center pivot hitch.
The second opportunity to learn more about Great Plains will be at Expo Agro Sinaloa February 18-22. At the show Great Plains will represented by its distributor in the region, Cadena Group. Mr. Ortega-Taveras will also be at the show to represent Great Plains.
“We are excited about the future of Great Plains business in Latin America,” said Ortega-Taveras. “Great Plains broad equipment line certainly fits with customers in this part of the world. We have had recent success in both our planter and tillage lines in Uruguay and Mexico. Across the region there is great interest in our vertical tillage system and twin-row cropping. And South American customers recognize us as being a leader in the no-till drilling practices they like to employ.”
