MT. JULIET, Tenn. (DTN) -- On Tuesday, Feb. 28, DTN will host its inaugural Ag Summit Series event, "Get Set for Spring."

The all-virtual experience will combine the insights you expect from agriculture's premier business event with the urgency of the issues. In one morning, we'll debate the driving forces behind farmers' acreage decisions, discuss the long-range weather forecasts and examine the forces at play in the fuel, fertilizer and chemical markets as you get ready to start the growing season.

In 2022, DTN presented its flagship business conference, the DTN Ag Summit, in a virtual format, responding to the popularity of our 2020 event during COVID. Going virtual opened the door to many new participants who simply can't get away from the farm to attend an in-person event. Now, the decision to go virtual means we're able to bring top-shelf content to you when it's timely and pertinent.

That's our goal for our first event. We'll start at 8:30 a.m. CST on Feb. 28 and adjourn around noon. In that time, we plan to cover:

-- Spring planting weather forecasts. DTN Ag Meteorologist John Baranick will share the latest insights from DTN's long-range weather models, giving you a better idea of the approach you'll need to employ come planting season. Will you have a wide-open window, or do you need to be prepared to capitalize on every opportunity between storms?

-- 3 Things to Watch in the Diesel Markets with DTN Oil and Refined Fuels Analyst Brian Milne. While many farmers pre-book their diesel needs, many still buy as they go. After last year's inventory squeeze and record prices, what can you expect as you fuel up the planter and the sprayer this season?

-- Grain market outlooks are always top of mind as the growing season nears. South America's soybean harvest will be well underway, and DTN Lead Analyst Todd Hultman will share how production forecasts in Brazil and Argentina influence the global supply and demand balance sheet. He'll look at factors driving the race for acres and explain what it means for production potential in the 2023 season and your grain marketing plans.

We hope you'll join this free virtual event. You can register for the DTN Ag Summit Series: Get Set for Spring here: https://whova.com/….
