This ninth annual event will feature sessions on data management and analytics, profitability of precision agriculture, precision planting, agricultural automation and more.

The ninth annual Precision Agriculture Summit is scheduled for Jan. 20-21 at the North Dakota Farmers Union Conference Center in Jamestown.

The agenda includes sessions on data management and analytics, profitability of precision agriculture, precision planting and agricultural automation. North Dakota State University Extension is collaborating with North Dakota Farmers Union, Praxis Strategy Group and others to coordinate the event.

“Producers and others will have an opportunity to learn about the latest trends in precision agriculture during the summit,” said John Nowatzki, NDSU Extension ag machine systems specialist. "Longtime practitioners Lanny Faleide, Satshot founder and president; Kelly Sharpe, GK Technology agronomist; and I will be on a panel to discuss the current state of precision agriculture and the challenges facing increased adoption by ag producers.”

Dane Braun, Bushel vice president of product, will present on postharvest precision technologies. Nowatzki said this will be a particularly fitting topic given the grain harvesting and marketing issues experienced by Northern Plains crop producers in 2019 and now leading into 2020.

Keynote speaker Terry Griffin, Kansas State University cropping systems economist, will discuss the return on investment for selected precision agriculture technologies and practices.

The next generation of precision farming will be featured in presentations by Brian Carroll, Emerging Prairie’s Grand Farm director, and Alex Melnitchouck, digital farming and precision ag evangelist from the Olds College Smart Farm in Calgary, Alberta.

Seth Arndorfer, Dakota Carrier Network CEO who was recently appointed to the Federal Communications Commission’s Precision Ag Task Force, will discuss the future of farm connectivity.

The afternoon sessions on the first day include preparing the next generation of agriculturalists, precision farm management, crop data management and postharvest precision technologies.
