A weekly webinar series featuring experts in data science and digital agriculture at Purdue University kicks off on Feb. 4 at 12:30 p.m. ET. Each Thursday this spring, the Data Driven Agriculture webinars will explore ways digital agriculture and data science can impact agriculture today and into the future.
“Building on the momentum of last fall’s digital agriculture webinars, we wanted to highlight not only how data is being used today but also explore its future potential,” said Dennis Buckmaster, agricultural and biological engineering professor and Dean’s Fellow of Digital Agriculture at Purdue University. “In this series, researchers from across the College of Agriculture – and beyond – will showcase how they are using data to improve crop, livestock and forest management decisions, increase produce safety, quickly identify disease outbreaks in livestock, and much more.”
The webinars start at 12:30 p.m. ET each Thursday starting on Feb. 4 and running through May 13. Speakers will present for the first 30 minutes followed by a live chat where participants can ask questions. Register here to receive the Zoom link to the entire series.
