Cropping low-yielding areas can be a waste of money-literally. With the high costs of inputs, areas like field borders, wet spots, or poor soils often don’t turn a profit. Fortunately, today’s technology is helping farmers to pin-point areas that consistently lose money, helping them to adjust practices to increase profitability and efficiency. As a bonus, converting these areas to perennial vegetation also results in better soil health, water quality, and wildlife habitat, and may qualify for a conservation payment.
Find out why and how to use precision cropping on your farm with this free webinar and field day!
During the webinar you’ll learn about the basics of precision agriculture and hear from a farmer who has benefited from the process. At the field day you’ll learn about equipment options, look at crop fields and their yield maps, and discuss how to get started.
