Are you ready to turn your data into profitable decisions?

You’ve recorded your planting, application, and harvest data, now what do you do with it?

Our SMS Software customers know this data can be used to make their operations more profitable in the 2018 growing season using the analysis and data creation tools available in this powerful software. Visit the Training team at the Ag Leader Academy this winter and let us show you how to reach your operational goals. We have three different course types planned: SMS Basic, SMS Advanced and SMS Certified I. These courses all take place in our state-of-the-art computer lab, so all you have to do is show up with your questions and goals! 

SMS Basic training is perfect for you if you’re just starting on this great data journey. You’ll leave the class being able to import all of your display files, create and print maps, build recommendations and export your setup files to all of your precision ag displays.



Ready to step up your game and capitalize on the powerful batch and analysis tools in your SMS Advanced Desktop Software? Then plan on attending one of our SMS Advanced trainings. During this course we will build on what was covered in the SMS Basic course by focusing on the time saving tools and data crunching analysis features that will streamline your decision making. Walk out of this course with the confidence to build your own custom print layouts, multi-year normalized yield maps, equation based recommendations and even profit and loss reports. 

For those loyal SMS users who have been using the software for years but are still investigating ways to increase their return on investment, take a look at our SMS Certified I course. This heavy hitter is three days of discussion, learning and networking that will elevate you to guru status. 

These courses are in high demand, so take a look at the schedule and get your seats reserved today.  Not sure which course would be the best for you?  We’ve got a team of dedicated training specialists who would love to chat with you and suggest a class based on your unique goals. Head over to to see the agendas for all of these courses and reserve your seat. 

Can’t wait to see you this winter!
