North Dakota Farmers Union and Praxis Strategy Group have organized 9 precision ag summits - the 2021 summit will not be held due to the COVID-19 situation. We plan to see you again in 2022.
Attending the summit offers hands on and technical demonstrations of precision agriculture technologies and applications and explanations of applications, procedure and tools designed to lower producer cost and create a more efficient environment for farm production.
Precision agriculture consists of the “art” of exploring options and implementing agronomic practices that are required by a plant species to attain its yield potential in accordance with the spatial and temporal conditions of the field where it is grown. Hence, precision agriculture is not merely about strapping a satellite signal receiving globe on the top of a tractor or combine and coupling that to a microprocessor in the operator station/cab. Rather, precision agriculture is a methodology that, if implemented successfully, integrates three key elements: (1) grower/agronomist information and insight about her/his crop fields and plant species, (2) technology and (3) management practice capable of integrating findings and implementing decisions. The emphasis should not singularly focus upon the technology, but should represent upon the overall methodology.
This event is open to the public and we strongly encourage agriculture producers, researchers, agronomists, manufacturers, business leaders, economic developers, and students who are interested in hearing from experts, exchanging ideas, and learning more about precision agriculture technology, methods, and practices.
