President of International Society of Precision Agriculture (ISPA), John Stafford, says there were a wide variety of items on the agenda at this year’s International Conference on Precision Agriculture including technology and crop and soil science.
“In many ways precision agriculture has become mainstream. It was something for only early adopters up until recent years, but now as the keynote speakers have said precision agriculture can provide some of the answers to the challenges facing agriculture.”
John adds that ISPA is growing in numbers and is involved in research around the world that helps makes the jobs of farmers and ranchers easier and more efficient. Along with this conference held in Sacramento this year, ISPA also hosts a European conference on precision agriculture every two years.
