JACKSONVILLE, FLA. -- A Focus on Precision Workshop kicked off the general member activities of the annual meeting for the National Alliance of Independent Crop Consultants.

The half-day breakout sessions allowed crop consultants to see demonstrations of precision agriculture tools that could be of value to them and their clients. The company representatives for four companies provided software training breakout sessions.  Simultaneous sessions with consultants switching every half hour allowed very small group discussions.

The companies and their representatives making presentations and software training were David Krueger, Ag Renaissance; Aaron Disrud, Precision Partners; Luke James, Ag Leader; and Kevin Abts, CropMetrics.

The annual meeting for NAICC is being held at Jacksonville, Fla., and will run through Saturday morning, Jan. 26. The number of pre-registered attendees was slightly more than 600.

Precisions agriculture will be a main focus of several presentations throughout the annual meeting for the crop consultants’ breakouts. Separate breakout presentations for researcher consultants and quality assurance representatives are also on the schedule.

Thursday morning’s precision sessions include “Yield Data Analysis” by John McGuire, Simplified Technology Services, and “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Precision Agriculture” by Kelly Robertson, Precision Crop Services.
