ISPA New T-shirts Sponsored by Valmont S. A.
New ISPA members and Country Representatives attending the 14th European Conference of Precision Agriculture (ECPA) were the first to wear the new ISPA T-shirts. Several of the ECPA attendees were excited about the T-shirts especially because the new ISPA logo approved this past June is stamped on them. This first batch of T-shirts was sponsored by Valmont Industries, Inc.
ISPA would like to thank Valmont for supporting its initiatives, especially Andreea Spridon and Luca Bondesan, Valmont representatives in Europe, for their great collaboration.

In the photo are ISPA board secretary, Brenda Ortiz, and Manuela Zude-Sasse from the Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconom in Postdam, Germany.
