Precision Agriculture in California
A Practical Workshop on Current and Potential Uses
Wednesday, July 14, 2010 (day before Weed Day)
8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Conference Center, UC Davis
Despite significant soil and crop variability in California’s agricultural fields, Site-Specific Management (SSM) has not been commonly used by the local industry. Many people are unfamiliar with geotechnologies and the principles of SSM which has limited widespread adoption of this valuable tool.
Workshop Goal: Present and discuss SSM concepts and applied research in order to provide the audience with a comprehensive understanding of how to identify and manage within-field variability to improve crop management.
Target Audience: Soils and crop management professionals, including UCCE Farm Advisors and Specialists, Pest Control Advisors, Certified Crop Advisers, Growers and others having an interest in improving their knowledge of SSM techniques.
