MT. JULIET, Tenn. (DTN) -- It's been a long winter. By the time late February rolls around, it's natural to yearn for spring. After all, it's so close you can almost taste it.

That's exactly why you should join us for DTN's inaugural Ag Summit Series event, "Get Set for Spring," on Feb. 28. This free virtual event is designed to help answer major questions as we prepare to flip the calendar to March: What will the window for planting look like in my area? What's the price outlook for the crops I'm about to plant? Will fuel prices be higher or lower than they are today?

Here are just three of the many reasons why you should tune into the Ag Summit Series.

1. It will concisely deliver the information you need to craft your plans for planting.

DTN Ag Summit Series events cover a lot of ground in a short time. We'll start at 8:30 a.m. CST and wrap up before noon. In that time, frame you'll hear from DTN Lead Analyst Todd Hultman on the markets forecast, DTN Ag Meteorologist John Baranick on the weather outlook and DTN Refined Fuels Analyst Brian Milne on diesel fuel price trends. A speaker from Mosaic will share insights into fertilizer availability, logistics and price trends so you can be ready to roll.

2. You don't have to travel to hear what the experts have to say.

Just because it's the off-season, doesn't mean you aren't busy. While there is a plethora of farm meetings this time of year, it's not practical to attend them all. You'd have to attend numerous sessions or meetings to gather all the information you'll receive in just one morning with the Ag Summit Series.

3. While the focus is on getting set for spring, it will set the stage for the entire growing season. Baranick will share lots of details on the spring forecast, but he will also delve into long-range projections for temperatures and precipitation, so you have an idea of what the weather will be during corn's critical pollination period. In his grain market outlook, Hultman will dive into more than just acreage trends. He'll explain what market factors farmers should watch as the season progresses as well as insights designed to support grain marketing decisions.
