Description

University of Maryland Extension, in cooperation with Virginia Tech, West Virginia University, Penn State, and University of Delaware, is proud to bring you the Fourth Annual Mid-Atlantic Precision Ag Equipment Day. The event will include the nation’s top experts on agricultural equipment and machinery engineering. New this year will be research information and a demonstration of Drones used for precision agriculture. Practical and informative advice will be given on sprayer and planter section control, variable rate seeding, economics and practical implementation of RTK and GPS, soil mapping, using technology for on-farm research and developing custom variable rate prescriptions, and much more. You will be able to sit in on informative sessions covering practical application of the latest technology in your operation. You will also have the opportunity to meet with the speakers throughout the day so that you can get your questions answered in an informal setting. In addition, agricultural equipment dealers from across the region will be in our sponsor midway showing off the latest technology and there will be an equipment demonstration area for you to see this equipment in action. The event is free for attendees, but we do ask that you register to help us plan for the event. Lunch will be provided and CCA and nutrient applicator credits will be available. If you are in agri-business and would like to reserve a booth there is still space available. Please contact Jennifer Rhodes (410) 758-0166 or jrhodes@umd.edu.
