Commodity Classic is the annual convention and trade show of the wheat, corn, soybeans and sorghum industries, and a place for much of the agriculture community to gather and discuss everything from the latest equipment and technology to pressing policy issues. Classic has been NAWG’s annual meeting since 2007.
