The 13th International Conference on Precision Agriculture (ICPA) is underway. Dr. Ken Sudduth, Research Agricultural Engineer, USDA-ARS, is currently President of the International Society of Precision Agriculture (ISPA) and welcomed us in this morning’s opening plenary session.
During Dr. Sudduth’s remarks he gives a report on the ISPA and encouraged attendees from 28 countries to help start affiliated groups in their countries. There are over 380 people attending the ICPA this year which is being held in conjunction with the 2016 InfoAg Conference. After this morning’s session the breakout sessions begin. There are 144 vocal presentations! Whew. Dr. Sudduth also introduced the incoming officers for ISPA during his remarks.

I will be here for the ICPA and InfoAg until Wednesday morning but I am tag teaming with our Kelly Marshall who will complete our coverage until the end of the joint conferences on Thursday.
