Six prominent individuals in agriculture share their thoughts on where we are, and where we need to go to improve adoption of data technology in agriculture.
On January 26, PrecisionAg® hosted a one-day conference, “Agriculture And Data: Finding What Works”, at the Marriott St. Louis Airport in St. Louis, MO. The meeting was the second in the PrecisionAg Innovation Series of events that will explore important, compelling and game-changing topics driving precision agriculture. This day-long meeting featured more than 20 speakers and panelists, and covered data from every angle.
Our grower panel returns to the stage to talk about what they learned, what impressed them, and how the industry should move forward from their perspectives.
The proposed acquisition of Precision Planting by John Deere from Climate Corp. will provide growers with smoother access to machinery data, and put even more data analysis power on the grower’s tablet computer. Learn more about how this new deal will impact growers and precision practices, and what to expect from these companies in the future.
Collecting valid field data can deliver efficiency and yield benefits, but there’s even more potential value to be realized. This panel discussion will reveal how field data is driving broader initiatives in the downstream food production channel, from sustainability programs to regulatory compliance to participation in carbon credit programs.
This session provides a summary of key initiatives related to ag technology and data, and how they will result in a more connected future for agriculture.
Data collection in the future will be collected and centralized more easily and seamlessly when ag devices are fully connected. In this session, the concept of the Internet of Things in agriculture will be explained, as well as its full impact on future farming.
In an effort to provide farmers with more control over their field data, a coalition of universities, industry firms, and agricultural technology providers are working on initiatives called data cooperatives. A number of data cooperatives A number of data cooperatives are in the formative stages and are making some progress. How viable is the concept, how would it work, what is the value to farmers and industry, and what else needs to be done will be the focus of this panel discussion.
Growers are using many different systems and employing many philosophies in an effort to put the data they collect to use. This panel of mid-size, high achieving growers will discuss what they are using, what they want to do (and currently can’t do) with data, the pain points, and the opportunities both achieved and missed. This no-holds barred session will help us get to the bottom of the data dilemma.
Arguably, no group is more in tune with “What Works” in terms of products and practices than the precision consulting professionals and businesses that are working with growers to create value from data. This panel features four prominent, experienced consultants who will share their learnings and experiences in a no-holds-barred panel discussion.
