There are precision agriculture enthusiasts from 45 countries attending the 11th International Conference on Precision Agriculture. This conference is held every two years and is taking place in Indianapolis, IN.
To learn about what’s new for this year’s conference I spoke with Dr. Rajiv Khosla, Colorado State University, who is the President of the International Society of Precision Agriculture (ISPA), an organization that was formed at the last conference and is now responsible for it.
Besides sessions on precision nutrient management, remote sensing, and information management Dr. Khosla says there will some new sessions focused on precision conservation and carbon management as well as machine visioning and imaging applications. Water is also going to be a big topic this year as precision applications and equipment can help manage this valuable resource. Get the whole preview of this year’s conference by listening to my interview with him.
My interview with Dr. Khosla is being published as the ZimmCast which you can find regularly on AgWired.com: [wpaudio url=”http://zimmcomm.biz/zimmcast/zimmcast358-7-16-12.mp3″ text=”11th International Conference on Precision Agriculture”]
