Interested in improving nitrogen management on your farm?
Come learn how drone-based sensors can fit into this equation!
10 AM – 2 PM, Thursday July 19, 2018
Dean & Deb Stevens Farm, 70225 656 Ave, Falls City, NE 68355
Join Dean & Deb Stevens on their farm as they share results of a North Central Region SARE-funded research project. The study evaluates the use of passive crop canopy sensors to direct in-season nitrogen fertilizer application by variable-rate aerial technology. Dale & Ronda Yoesel teamed up on the project which aims to help local farmers increase nitrogen use efficiency, assess cutting-edge technologies and improve management techniques.
