'Bringing Agriculture to Life with Precision Technology'
Precision agriculture was introduced in the 1990’s as a way of providing producers with a more effective way of guiding through their fields. Today, it has grown to be a much more complex process where it focuses on accuracy and controlled techniques for planting and growing crops. Some of the specific applications include but are not limited to, variable rate technology (VRT), soil sampling, computer-based applications, and remote sensing. This workshop will inspire educators to incorporate precision technology applications into their classroom through project-based learning.|
