Precision Agriculture in Denmark 2020
According to Denmark Statistics, the share of farms using precision technology increased from 28 percent in 2019 to 35 percent in 2020. The growth is mainly due to section control of field sprayers and other equipment, which increased from 14 percent to 21 percent. The percentage of farms using most other technologies increased modestly or was unchanged. The area managed with precision agriculture technology changed somewhat. For example:
  • The area of Danish crop land managed with some type of precision agriculture technology increased to 70% in 2020, up from 66% in 2019.
  • The area managed with crop sensors dropped from 8% in 2019, to 5% in 2020.

New Extension Publication - DigitalAG@Farms
The DigitalAg@Farm publication series was prepared by Alabama A & M and Auburn Universities with the goal of increasing awareness and knowledge on different applications of precision ag technologies for site specific management and also on the agronomic benefits of using different technologies in agriculture. The majority of the project reports included here are focused on precision planting and irrigation. Although the results included correspond to the 2019 year, the results and information is still very much relevant today. We will put together the same report with the 2020 results.

ECPA 2021 Update
Registration for ECPA 2021 will open soon. Corresponding authors will receive a personal mail directly from the organizers regardless of official notice. This still not mean official acceptance of the proposed papers!
All accepted papers will be included in the Proceedings which will be distributed at the start of the Conference. (For on-line participants there will be a digital version of the proceedings).
Please note also that submissions of presenting authors who have not registered before the deadline for early registration (30th March 2021), will be removed from the proceedings. For this reason it is important to indicate the presenting author carefully.
The organizers hope that the pandemic situation will let the conference to be organized in person!
