Big picture thinking can benefit any person in any profession. It brings "wholeness" and maturity to a person's thinking and it is inspired by open-mindedness and creativity.

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.

Yesterday's Peer - Tomorrow's Leader

You’ve been a dependable worker. You are on time, efficient and the quality of your work speaks for itself. It’s no wonder you’re being promoted. But making the transition from peer to boss is never easy. It will be different from the technical knowledge you developed in your previous job. A sizable portion of your time will be spent on “people management activities” and this will include employees that were once your co-workers and equals. In addition, you will be assuming new responsibilities and duties that will shift your focus from your own personal tasks and duties to those of your team and the organization as a whole. In this course participants will identify differences between supervisors and employees and how to accept their new leadership role. They will learn to set clear boundaries for themselves and others, to effectively communicate with those they lead, to achieve desired results, and a host of other skills to help them increase the new supervisor’s personal effectiveness. They will look examine the mistakes commonly made by new supervisors and will be offered a plethora of advice to eliminate frustration and stress.
