A weekly webinar series featuring experts in data science and digital agriculture at Purdue University kicks off on Feb. 4 at 12:30 p.m. ET. Each Thursday this spring, the Data Driven Agriculture webinars will explore ways digital agriculture and data science can impact agriculture today and into the future.
The first in the series is Precision Soil Maps: Moving Beyond Soil Survey presented by Jason Ackerson, assistant professor of agronomy. His research focuses on two main pillars 1) developing and testing novel soil sensing systems for improved measurement of soil properties and 2) developing systems to integrate novel sensor information into spatiotemporal soil mapping and monitoring applications. Check out his video update on research regarding digital soil mapping to support precision agriculture in the Wabash Heartland Innovation Network region.
The webinar start at 12:30 p.m. ET on Thursday Feb. 4. Ackerson will present for the first 30 minutes followed by a live chat where participants can ask questions. Register here to receive the Zoom link to the entire series.
This series is supported in part by the Wabash Heartland Innovation Network (WHIN).
