Ohio State University's College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences will be hosting a free webinar on precision agriculture on Jan. 20 at 10 a.m.

The presentation will focus on helping farmers boil down information from field monitored data, satellite data and remote sensing data captured using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The event will feature “Using Precision Agriculture to Make Informed Decisions,” presented by John Fulton, an OSU Extension specialist in machinery systems, and “Can Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) be an Agronomic Tool?,” presented by John Barker, and OSU Extension educator.

“We’ll talk about taking the data we’re capturing from UAVs and other data sources and trying to massage it down into useable formants that can be incorporated by farmers to make better management decisions,” says Greg LaBarge, an Ohio State University Extension field specialist and one of the leaders of Ohio State University’s Agronomic Crops Team.
