[ARCHIVED] Coffee Shop Agronomy

Using Precision Ag Technology Profitably will be the topic of the season's first Coffee Shop Agronomy meeting, scheduled for 10:30 a.m. to noon on Thursday, January 14th at Nelson's Landing in Leonardville. Terry Griffin, K-State Research & Extension Agriculture Economist, will be the featured speaker. Griffin has been asked to discuss ways precision ag technology can make money for small to medium size ag producers.

Guidance systems, yield monitors, variable rate seeding and fertilizer application, and automatic sprayer boom and planter shut-offs are all examples of precision ag technology that has proven profitable on larger farms. But, will the same technology work for smaller operations too? Or, are these luxuries that smaller producers simply can't afford?

These are some of the questions that will be discussed at the January 14th Coffee Shop Agronomy meeting. There is no charge to attend, but producers are asked to register online or call 785-537-6350 by noon on January 13th.
