The PrecisionAg Institute was developed in 2006 as an independent global forum dedicated to the sharing of precision agriculture practices, ideas, research, products, services and success stories.
Through advocacy, education and research, the Institute intends to advance precision technology and its efficiency, stewardship and profitability on farms around the world through a variety of integrated media offerings:
- Grower research
- PrecisionAg eNews
- PrecisionAg Award of Excellence
- PrecisionAg Events
- 1 on 1 Interviews with Executive Editor Paul Schrimpf
- Educational promotion
The Institute is managed by the Agribusiness Group of Meister Media Worldwide. The staff has been instrumental in knowledge transfer to the benefit of precision agriculture even as the practice began to be formalized in the early 1990s. First through Farm Chemicals and Dealer PROGRESS magazines, then through PrecisionAg.com, the PrecisionAg Buyer’s Guide, PrecisionAg Magazine, CropLife and other outlets, the group has been a steady advocate of the technology and its benefits to growers and practitioners.
The PrecisionAg Institute is made possible by the generous corporate and financial support of the PrecisionAg Institute Partners.
