The more data farmers and producers can access regarding their fields, the better they can make decisions regarding how to manage their farm operations, experts say.
But boiling down information from field monitored data, satellite data and remote sensing data captured using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles can sometimes be challenging.
To help farmers with that task, a webinar on precision agriculture will be offered live by agronomic experts with Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences
The free event will feature “Using Precision Agriculture to Make Informed Decisions,” presented by John Fulton, an OSU Extension Specialist in machinery systems, and “Can Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) be an Agronomic Tool?” presented by John Barker, and OSU Extension educator.
Other webinars are planned for the series include:
Feb. 3 — Soybean production, featuring “Agronomic Practices to Maximize Soybean Yield,” presented by Laura Lindsey, OSU Extension specialist in soybean and small grain production, OSU Extension, and “Late Season Soybean Pest Issues,” presented by Andy Michel, OSU Extension specialist in entomology.
Feb. 17 — Corn production, featuring “Corn Interaction with Today’s Production Management Systems,” presented by Peter Thomison, OSU Extension specialist in corn production, and “What is the Latest Research on Ear Molds and Mycotoxins?” presented by Pierce Paul, OSU Extension specialist in corn and small grain plant pathology.
March 10 — Agronomic utilization of manure, featuring “Can Manure Sourced Nutrients be Used to Meet Crop Need?” presented by Greg LaBarge, OSU Extension field specialist in agronomic systems, and “Alternative Applications Timing to Take Advantage of Nitrogen,” presented by Glen Arnold, OSU Extension field specialist in manure nutrient utilization.
During the Jan. 20 webinar, growers and producers can learn about the various types of UAVs being used by agriculture professionals, including their costs, as well as offering information on users’ field experience using them.
The presentation will also offer information on how to use information gleaned from the use of precision agriculture.
All of the webinars will be presented live 10-11:30 a.m. Use this link to connect to the webinar, select Guest Log in and enter your name, then the connect button. Participants will be able to ask presenters questions during the event via the Internet. Recorded versions will be available online by 5:30 p.m. those same days.
