Emerging precision ag at upcoming S.D. conferences
The Western Corn Belt Precision Farming Conference will include discussion on management techniques to increase the corn yields of every Western Belt Corn field by 40 bushels per acre. South Dakota State University, SDSU Extension and industry experts will provide practical guidance for optimizing yields. Opportunities to network with industry sponsors will be provided.
Each day will consist of sessions that focus on GSI mapping, new technology systems and above all, planting.
"All sessions are geared toward giving information that can be used in personal operations to improve decision-making, understand new technologies and boost yields," said Graig Reicks, SDSU Extension research associate with the SDSU Plant Science Department.
Admission is $35. Advance registration is not required but highly recommend; meals will be provided.
