Topics will include the key components of precision agriculture such as computers, sensors and GPS; learn about soil electric conductivity and how it relates to precision soil sampling and variable rate technology.
Precision agriculture is a management tool utilizing observation and measurement to determine variability within fields. Computers, sensors, GPS, remote sensing, satellite imagery and drones are all components of precision agriculture but all are not necessarily needed to make informed decisions. Bring your questions and learn more about site specific management and variable rate applications and the economics of using precision agriculture.
