It´s not a school, but it is a conference to school Kansas farmers in local, breakthrough technologies in the agriculture industry, such as precision farming. The Cattle Network reports that the 11th annual Kansas Agricultural Technology Conference will be held Jan. 23-25 at the Holiday Inn and Conference Center in Salina, KS. The three-day event is meant to offer both novice and veteran producers, consultants and other ag industry participants a breakdown of new farming innovations and a look at the future of agriculture.

The first day is geared toward those who may be newer to site-specific technologies, said Staggenborg, who is a coordinator of the event.

Several of the speakers are experienced users of the technologies and “have a view to the future,” he said. Day one topics range from “Using Precision Tools for Making On-Farm Decisions” to “Who is Going to Take Your Data to the Next Level” and more.

The second day focuses on “pushing the envelope” of technology with glimpses of what is new and on the horizon, Staggenborg said. The day´s topics range from “Sprayer Tip Technology Update” and “Site-Specific Management” to “Record Keeping,” “Water Quality,” “Autonomous Vehicles” and others.

The registration fee for the conference is $100 before January 15 and $125 beginning January 16. Members of KARA receive a $50 discount on their tickets. You can view the entire article .
