Drift Control Root Cause Analysis with Dr. Greg Kruger

Thursday, February 4, 2021 | 2:00 PM EST

Pesticide spray drift is becoming an increasing issue for agricultural applicators and growers alike.  An effective drift control program starts with understanding what is drift, why is it produced, and how can it be reduced.  In this webinar, Dr. Greg Kruger, one of the leading experts on pesticide spray drift from the University of Nebraska’s Pesticide Application Technology Lab, will share his insights on this dilemma.  Greg will present his latest research on drift control, and how growers and spray applicators can use available new technologies to tackle the root causes of drift.  Ed Quattlebaum, Ph.D, the Director of Product Development at Attune Agriculture, will share details about a new adjuvant for row crops that has been proven to provide 30% better drift control than 4 leading DRAs.

Advancing Sustainable Production Systems with Crop Nutrition

Thursday, February 11, 2021 | 2:00 PM EST

Healthy soils provide the foundation for sustainable, productive and profitable crop growth. Managing for healthy soils is a systems approach that can encompass various management practices. The critical elements to develop a sustainable production system include understanding what nutrients are needed for healthy soils and plant growth, as well as how to manage crop nutrition with the 4R nutrient framework (Right Source, Right Rate, Right Time, Right Place). This presentation will look beyond a balanced crop nutrition approach and discuss an advanced program that can not only assist with increasing your growers’ yields in 2021, but for years to come.

Your Farm Data: Where Is It and Who Has Access?

Now on Demand!  Original Air Date: March 24, 2020

Recent concerns over data sharing and use have put a spot light on the work the Agricultural Data Coalition (ADC) has been doing for the past few years. Many farmers likely have questions and concerns about what is happening with their data as planting season is rapidly approaching. To help shed light on these concerns, we have pulled together people from various parts of the ag data industry to share their expertise. This webinar will discuss what technologies like API’s are and what ag tech company partnership agreements generally mean for a farmer. We hope to give farmers a better understanding of points to consider when signing up with agriculture technology services so they are positioned to control their data in an ever changing marketplace.
