October 27, 2011
By: Sara Schafer, Farm Journal Media Business and Crops Editor

The ever-changing precision agriculture industry can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate. Let AgWeb help. 

Enroll in our four free virtual conferences that will cover key precision ag topics.
The first session, which will be held Nov. 3, will detail how precision pays back.
Topics to be discussed:
  • How to calculate ROI.
  • Shutting off individual nozzles and planter units to save big dollars.
  • Integrating precision technology into your existing equipment.
  • Saving time and profiting from data collected.


Speakers include Midwest farmers and experts, such as Iowa farmer Chris Barron and Isaac Ferrie of Crop-Tech Consulting, Inc.

In total, four virtual conferences will be held. Future sessions include:

Session 2: Nov. 10

Autoswath Control

This is an emerging area of precision agriculture that allows farmers to shut off individual spray nozzles and planter row units.
Session 3: Nov. 17

Adapting Precision Equipment to Your Equipment

It doesn't take brand new equipment to adapt precision technology to your fleet. Learn from farmers who have integrated precision technology into their existing equipment, whether it is 20 years old or brand new.
Session 4: Dec. 8

Connectivity from the Field to the Farm Office

Telematics is a new and innovative system that allows farmers to directly upload data from the tractor to the farm office in real time. Learn what systems are available, how it works and how you can save time and profit
