Precision Agriculture Technology


Program Description:

Recent developments in unmanned aircraft, entomology, plant pathology, and weed science in conjunction with advanced technologies such as remote sensing, global positioning, geographic information systems, and variable rate technology are dynamically influencing agricultural productivity.  In addition, the implementation of these technologies can greatly improve environmental quality by reducing the volume of agricultural chemicals applied.  The emergence of these technologies has increased the demand for technically trained workers.
