Speakers and Topics:

 

Clint Rogers, (Gentech Seeds): Canola phenology – drivers & impacts on farm management decisions.

 

Understanding the mechanisms that drive phenology in your selected canola hybrid can assist in making on farm management decisions. With hybrids showing significant variation in phenology and physiological development we need to understand how they behave from season to season to better determine sowing time, nutrient management, disease management  & yield potential.

 

Neil Wittwer (Farmer, YP): Data, Data, Data Assessing its future & pushing Precision Ag past Variable Rate  N & P

 

Tractors, sprayers, harvesters, weathers stations, satellites, sensors, phones and computers all collecting masses of data perfect for filling usb drives and blocking up email inboxes………. Has our focus on the agronomic benefits of P.A. over shadowed the bigger benefits it could hold for our farming businesses? The thoughts, ideas and ramblings of a young, over tied farmer playing with some cool technology and try to make sense of the bigger picture.
