Event Description

With a theme of “Focus on Precision Technology That Pays,” experts will detail how implementing technology that aids in decision-making can improve yields, increase profit margins and reduce environmental impacts. This educational field day will discuss tools and techniques that will help farmers make data-based decisions that can improve their farm’s efficiencies and showcase how data collected from various points of production agriculture come together as important components in the smart use of technology.

The free event features nine field-based sessions focused on specific technological aids that will assist producers in making farm technology goals:

  • Smart Ag: Where Is It Going?  
  • There's an Ag App for That.  
  • Precision Soil Sampling. 
  • Remote Sensing With Drones. 
  • Planter Calibration: Seed Placement Pays.  
  • The Art and Science of Writing a Variable Rate Seeding Prescription. 
  • Yield Monitor Data and Proper Calibration: A Four-Step Process. 
  • Feeding Crops with Sensor-Based Variable Rate Nitrogen Technology.  
  • Using the Michigan EnviroImpact Tool when Applying Manure. 

The event has been approved for Restricted Use Pesticide credits (6 credits) and Certified Crop Advisor continuing education units in integrated pest management, crop management, soil and water management and sustainability.
