Dr. Ryan Larsen, Assistant Professor in Agribusiness and Applied Economics Department, has submitted a grant proposal in the amount of $150,000 to USDA.
The title of this proposal is: “Creating a Modular Farm Simulator for Risk and Resource Management”
We propose the NDSU Farm Simulator developed using a number of srategies learned in the development of Immersive Virtual Environments.
The interface includes a map of locations in the simulator. Players can visit these locations at any time. Some important locations include banks, elevators, agricultural supply cooperatives, implement dealers, insurance agents, realtors, and other farms.
