Webinar: Benefits to Farming and Conservation through Precision Agriculture Technologies

September 15, 2021

Ames, Iowa – The Iowa Learning Farms conservation webinar taking place Sep. 15 at noon will feature Ryan Bergman, technical project specialist, Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering, at Iowa State University. Bergman works on developing and implementing precision agriculture technologies with a recent focus on application equipment.

In the webinar, “Precision Ag and Conservation,” Bergman will highlight multiple technological advances that have improved both profitability and environmental outcomes in agricultural operations. Management and placement of applied products, including the reduction of some products, will also be covered. Bergman will also discuss systems and approaches that are under development to further advance the impacts of precision agriculture on the industry.

“The ability to better place products at the right location and time to deliver the maximum benefit to crops not only improves crop health but also mitigates loss of under-consumed products to runoff,” said Bergman. “Agricultural equipment technology is constantly improving, and the benefits to producers and the environment are clear. I am eager to update the audience on where we are today, and what might be possible in the near future.”

Participants in Iowa Learning Farms Conservation Webinars are encouraged to ask questions of the presenters. People from all backgrounds and areas of interest are encouraged to join.
