Upcoming Schedule for the Virtual ICPA Fall Webinar Series

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.
  • Rodrigo Ortega - Trends in PA Technologies in Chile
  • Fernando Scaramuzza - Evolution of PA in Argentina
  • José P. Molin - Evolution of PA in Brazil
  • Information related to the Latam PA Association (ALAP) and the Second Latam PA Conference (CLAP)
  • Latin America Business meeting with community leader elections
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.
November 5, 2020 - Economics Community 
Precision agriculture will only achieve widespread adoption if farmers and agribusiness can use it profitably. This webinar includes presentations on the regulation of agricultural robotics, adoption of smart phone apps in German agriculture, and the impact of seed technology on farm equipment manufacturers.
Be on the look out for additional details being released soon!

Virtual ICPA 2020

Thank you for all those who attended the Virtual ICPA 2020 webinar. This was ISPA's first-ever online webinar, and we hope the success of the presentations will encourage even more members to join us in any future online collaboration events.
We would like to again thank our keynote speaker, Dr. David Lamb, for his presentation and participation at such a late hour. The presentation provided ample engagement from our participants during the Q&A session. Our congratulations go out to the winners of the Pierre C. Robert Scientist Awards, Dr. Joe Luck receiving the 2020 Young Scientist Award, and to Dr. James Schepers, winner of the 2020 Senior Scientist Award. This was indeed a difficult year to select from our superbly qualified field of nominees.
We would also like to welcome in our newly elected Leadership Team: Dr. Ruth Kerry - Treasurer; Dr. Athyna Cambouris - Secretary; Dr. John Fulton - President-Elect. We are pleased to have these new leaders join our officers and know they will help make the ISPA society even greater.
As our current Past-President, Dr. Nicolas Tremblay, leaves his position, we presented him with the Honorary Life Fellow of the Society award, a well-deserved honor. Our current President, Dr. Ian Yule, bid a fond farewell to his position and is taking up his role as Past-President. Finally, we welcome in our new ISPA President, Dr. Jess Lowenberg-DeBoer. We look forward to your tenure in leadership.
Look to our website and newsletters for announcements of future online collaboration with ISPA.
