The second Red River Valley Research Corridor Precision Agriculture Summit is being co-hosted by the Red River Valley Research Corridor and North Dakota Farmers Union. Co organizers include Lake Region State College’s Dakota Precision Ag Center and NDSU's Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering.

Attendees will hear from experts and presenters on a number of topics, including the state of precision agriculture, upcoming trends, technological applications, and opportunities for successful implementation. 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 to join us at the 2013 Precision Agriculture Summit on January 21 & 22 in Jamestown, North Dakota.
