“New Technologies for Crop Production” is the theme of the 2013 K-State Agronomy Field Day on August 16, and it will feature some of the most exciting new technology in agriculture today. K-State is leading the nation in research on the use of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) in agriculture. At the field day, you’ll see how sUAS and other optical technology can be used in crop scouting to find trouble spots in fields quickly. The field day will also feature demonstrations of equipment used in research on climatic stresses in crop production. The 2013 Agronomy Field Day will be held at the North Agronomy Farm in Manhattan. It begins at 9:30 a.m. and lasts until 2 p.m. A lunch will be provided. There is no charge.
