The ZimmComm Team is gearing up for a great week on the agriblogging highway next week. Chuck heads off to Germany for the Bayer CropScience Corn and Soybean Future Forum. You can follow that activity on Twitter using the #CropFutureForum hashtag. Cindy takes off to Miami for the World LP Gas Forum. Jamie and our fall intern, Taylor Truckey will be in Indianapolis for the National FFA Convention. Scary amount of road time during Halloween week, eh?
After our latest ZimmPoll showed that 73% believe the uncertainty with the RFS caused by the EPA has hurt local business and jobs we’ve got a new ZimmPoll running that asks the question, “ What should the US do about the WTO COOL ruling?” Let us know what you think.
Our own Joanna Schroeder was the principal researcher for a recent report published in Academics Review, “Organic Marketing Report.” She presented the results at the Western Plant Health Association Annual Mtg. Check out her findings.
