REPEATED Thursdays - January 28, February 11 & 25, 2021 from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
Registration is required.
Famers and anyone interested in learning more about precision agriculture and how it can be implemented on the farm is invited to attend a three part virtual series.
Topics will begin with an introduction to precision agriculture and why any producer of an agricultural product should be interested in precision agriculture.
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. Participants should bring their questions to learn more about site specific management, variable rate applications, and the economics of using precision agriculture.
All sessions are free to attend; however, pre-registration is required. Due to current COVID-19 safety precautions this virtual series will be conducted via Zoom. To fully access the series it is recommended that participants have a high speed internet connection for their computer. Please contact Seneca County Cornell Cooperative Extension at least one week prior to the series beginning if you need assistance accessing Zoom by calling 315-539-9251 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hosted by Seneca County Cornell Cooperative Extension, the series will feature Dr. Ali Nafchi, Precision Agriculture Specialist with CCE’s NWNY Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Team and the Cornell Vegetable Program.
