Precision Decisions: Refining Farm Profitability on Cropland

Free online webinar

Monday December 6, Noon- 1:15pm

Farm fields are not created equal. Variations in soil, slope, depth, moisture, and shade mean some areas of a field may actually be losing you money year after year.

Join us to learn how farms of all sizes and budgets can use their farm-specific information to identify areas where management changes or voluntary conservation programs can improve efficiency and profitability.

Local farmers and experts from UW-Madison Extension and Pheasants Forever will discuss and answer questions about:

  • How variations in soils affect your crops
  • Using yield and profit maps to identify underperforming areas
  • Choosing alternatives that fit your operation and goals
  • How to get started, including technology and equipment options
  • Resources and programs that can help

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.
