September 10, 2020 - Big Data
Converting data to decisions is one of the major precision agriculture challenges. This webinar includes presentations on: using cell phone images to estimate soil organic carbon, neural networks to classify weed images, video based deep learning for estimating maize ear height, and automated data correction for plant breeding locations.
September 24, 2020 - Latin America Community
This webinar will include three presentations about trends in precision agriculture in Latin America, followed by information about the second Latin American Precision Agriculture Conference (CLAP), postponed until next year.
October 8, 2020 - Nitrogen Community
Nitrogen fertilizer is one of the most important crop nutrients. Because it is affected by temperature, moisture and other factors it is also one of the most difficult to manage. This webinar will focus on research by the ISPA Nitrogen Management Community to improve spatial and temporal management of nitrogen.
October 15, 2020 - On-Farm Experimentation Community
Optimizing farming systems will probably require some planned experimentation. It is unlikely that simply observing function systems will provide data for crop and livestock responses over all the relevant inputs and range of rates. This webinar will focus on research by the ISPA On-farm Experimentation Community to make on-farm testing more relevant to farmers and agribusiness.
Be on the look out for additional details being released soon at ispag.org/icpa.
