Crop Scouting Technologies

In this course, we will discuss multiple technologies used to increase efficiency of in-season crop management. We will include the use of sensors to improve water and nitrogen management, pest management tools, and a few scouting apps to help you during the growing season. By attending this course you will:

-Learn best scouting practices to support site-specific management.
-Understand the benefits of using real-time sensing and aerial imagery for scouting
-Identify new tools used to increase scouting efficiencies
-Identify new mobile applications for plant and insect ID

Precision Agriculture Implementation: The Right Way for You

For over 30 years, advances in management practices and technology has continued to increase yield potential, resource management, and profitability margins. Compile that with increasing land and input costs, and the advent of environmental issues and regulations, one can appreciate any method that promotes the possibility of increased revenue, better decision making, record keeping, and reporting.

Precision Agriculture has grown over the same period. It reaches into every area of agriculture, row crops, livestock (both confinement and range production), orchards, edible crops, and organics. Growing from “simple” yield and moisture monitoring to variable rate and multi hybrid seeding, variable rate fertility, variable rate irrigation, robotic weeding, spot spraying by weed species, livestock health and vitals monitoring, a myriad of remote sensing options, autonomous vehicles, and sensors and meters to monitor and control virtually any aspect of the operation imaginable.

With all the options available, the question is, how does one implement a Precision Agriculture management practice that is right for the operation? Knowing that there is not a one-size-fits-all solution, it behooves each operator to know the options available and the questions to ask to come to a conclusion that fits both the operator and the operation.
Come join us for training on Precision Agriculture evaluation to learn to determine what management practices are right for you and your operation.

Topics and benefits covered will include:
 What is Precision Agriculture
 The impacts of Precision Agriculture on an operation
 What questions to ask when determining the right match for your operation
 Steps to implement the right plan
 New equipment vs. modifying current equipment

This class will be offered via ITV from Norfolk to the other locations.

Variable Rate Irrigation and Your Operation - Norfolk

As water availability and quality become a greater issue, it is important to stay up to date with the current technologies available and understand the benefits they provide to their owners. In this 3-part series, we will discuss:

• Variable rate irrigation technologies available
• Pros and cons of each type of variable rate irrigation
• Strengths of each type of variable rate irrigation
• Proper environment for each type of variable rate irrigation
• Rate of payback to implement variable rate irrigation.
• Actual cost of implementation for your situation

We encourage you to take all three, but sessions can be taken independently of one another.

Session 1 will cover the informational aspects of precision irrigation including types and ROI. This session will be offered ITV from Norfolk to the other locations on November 21.

Session 2 will prepare you to find the costs and payback for your specific field(s). This session will be offered ITV from Norfolk to the other locations on December 19.

Session 3 will put you face to face with several variable rate irrigation venders to give you low-pressure, non-binding options and costs to implement variable rate irrigation in your field. This session will be offered in Norfolk only on January 9.
