Agrimarketing : January-Febuary 2010
Midlands NAMA Examines Changing Face of PR Midlands NAMA Chapter members and guests held their November meeting at the Nebraska Farm Bureau office in Lincoln, Neb. A panel discussion explored how public relations methods and practices have evolved in recent years. The conversation centered on new trends, the need to engage with consumers via social media websites and concerns about the spread of negative or false information. Heartland NAMA Hosts Lunch and Learn Members of Heartland NAMA toured Brandt Consolidated, a leading provider of seed, crop nutrients and crop protection in Springfield, Ill. Participants also listened in on marketing and sales presentations and reviewed a recent branding exercise being conducted by Brandt. Forecasting the Future with Chesapeake NAMA Stewart Ramsey, Senior Economist with Global Insight's Agriculture Service, provided a glimpse into the future for regional agricultural marketers at Chesapeake NAMA's Lunch 'n Learn in mid-November. Held at Farm Journal's new head- quarters in Center City, Philadel- phia, the meeting focused on this year's harvest and how current uncertainties with the global economy will affect fertilizer, fuel, seed and chemical costs in the coming year.
