Precision agriculture is becoming the norm on farms throughout  South Dakota. The technology trend is increasing yields and dollars on the farm and isn’t going to fade any time soon said, Gregg Carlson, Professor of Plant Science at South Dakota State University.

“Bottom line, precision agriculture is the way we farm today and are going to farm into the future. It’s the way we’ll farm because it makes us money,”
said Carlson.

Carlson has researched and provided information on the technology for more than 30 years. He went on to say, “What we call precision agriculture today will become conventional farming in the near future.”

Carlson and other experts in the field of precision agriculture will host two precision agriculture conferences in 2014. The Western Corn Belt Precision Farming Conference will be March 18-19, 2014 in Sioux Falls at The Sioux Falls Convention Center.

Admission is $35. Advance registration is not required but highly recommended. Meals will be provided.
