Limited Capacity seats available

SDSU is at the forefront with its first-in-the-nation Precision Agriculture bachelor's degree within the Ag & Biosystems Engineering Department. Precision technology and training are key to increasing farm profitability and will play a major role in ecosystem sustainability. Agriculture is experiencing a fast-paced evolution as technology continues to develop. Precision agriculture has emerged with an array of new and exciting - and increasingly high-tech - tools. The integration of computer technology with farm equipment, farm sensors, GPS navigation, satellite imagery and drone imagery are quickly revolutionizing agricultural production. While this revolutionary evolution is creating new opportunities within the agricultural industry, it is also generating a need for college graduates, pertinent research, and Extension expertise related to precision agriculture.

Participants for this in-depth session will have the opportunity to utilize the department's eight Kubota vehicles for hands-on precision ag experience; as well as software in the precision ag computer lab.

Limited to 32 participants through conference registration - first-come, first-serve.
