First Tristate Precision Ag event planned
An inaugural Tri-State Precision Agriculture Conference is taking place in Northwest Ohio at the beginning of August.
Coordinator Alan Leininger with Henry County Ohio State University Extension tells Brownfield this year will focus on tillage with hopes of better serving farmers in his region.
“Specifically high-speed tillage, some of these are European concepts that we’ve seen in Europe for a long time, and our manufacturers here in the United States have started to develop,” he explains.
Leininger says he hopes the event, planned for August 11, will become an annual resource for farmers.
“The first one we just want to get something accomplished and then we have a springboard of where to go in the future,” he says.
He says Ohio farmers, crop advisors, and applicators will also be able to receive educational credits for attending. More details are here.
