USDA NRCS Webinar: Use of Precision Ag Technologies to Strengthen Cropland Conservation Efforts and Farm Profitability

Precision ag technologies enable farmers to measure and respond to variations across their operations in real time and to identify trends across multiple growing seasons. This can inform and ultimately strengthen decision making for planting, nutrient management, pest management, irrigation, harvesting, and natural resource conservation.

On July 20 at 1:00 p.m. eastern, Dr. Douglas R. Smith from the USDA Agricultural Research Service’s Grassland Soil and Water Research Laboratory will present findings from research efforts to strengthen cropland conservation and profitability with precision ag technologies. This work, supported by USDA’s Conservation Effects Assessment Project, identifies a linkage between consistently unproductive portions of fields and high hydrological activity. These findings inform management decisions on a USDA research farm to increase profitability and reduce fertilizer runoff by prioritizing high-yield areas for crop production. While the focus of this presentation is on the Blackland Prairie of Texas, farmers across the United States may use the insights shared to strengthen their cropland management efforts.
