UPDATE MAY 3 — In case you missed this chat – visit Truffle Media who posted the entire convo.
Several farmers who use the social media Twitter are holding a one-hour chat about precision agriculture this Friday April 30th at noon Central.
According to Daren (@kansfarmer), topic will be precision ag, with a focus on planting precision-related topics and issues. We will use the #agtech hashtag for the chat. Format will be similar, although abbreviated from the standard Tuesday evening #agchat that takes place. Some guidelines on how AgChat works available here: http://michelepaynknoper.com/agchatguide.html. Everyone will be asked to give an introduction at the start, and a few minutes in we will open with first Q – give 10-15 minutes for discussion of that question, than move to the next one. Hope to see you there.
There is a regularly scheduled weekly agchat that usually attracts over 100 participants from diverse backgrounds and covers wide range of ag topics. We decided to try this more narrow-focused chat at least once. If you are unfamiliar with Twitter and do not have an account setup, you can still go to the www.twitter.com homepage and enter #agtech as the search term and see the chat as it happens.
This short chat is being organized by Daren (@kansfarmer) and Brandon Hunnicutt(@cornfedfarmer). Not a lot of ag technology activity on Twitter right now, but both Ag Leader and Raven have active accounts, have seen a handful of ag tech service providers, and several NeATA folks.
