Event Details

Each year in January, on an agreed upon date, time and location as per our bylaws, Oregon Aglink holds an annual membership meeting. Attendees are updated on Oregon Aglink's progress over the last year, elect the Executive Committee and Board of Directors while enjoying lunch before wrapping up with industry-relevant guest speakers.

This year, Oregon Aglink is excited to welcome Chad Higgins, Assistant Professor at Oregon State University.

Farms of the Future: Practical Tech for Oregon Ag
You manage water, soil, fertilizer, and dollars on your farm in order to be successful and sustainable. What about managing sunlight? Learn what's on the horizon in the form of useful and practical technology, taking precision agriculture to the next level. The innovative research at OSU is being driven by agriculturalists and is based in the idea that terabytes of data are only useful when transformed into information and combined with grower's wisdom.

Chad founded the Nexus of Energy, Water and Agriculture Laboratory (NEWAG Lab) to study the physical, operational and geospatial tradeoffs in the energy, water food nexus in 2012 just after he joined the faculty at Oregon State University. He holds degrees in Biological Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Environmental Engineering, and has broad research interests that cover topics from turbulence to precision agriculture to snow science. He has performed field experiments in a variety of environments, from deserts to glaciers, within the USA and internationally. His recent work has focused on Precision Irrigation, Mountain Meteorology, Atmospheric Turbulence and Hydrology.

All active Oregon Aglink members are invited to attend. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions: 503-595-9121.
