Event Registration - Irrigation Technology & The Future of Farming
Thursday, October 22, 2020
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
In the middle of the 20th century, forward thinkers envisioned flying cars, a dream that hasn't happened yet. They seldom addressed what farming would look like years down the road. When considering the future of farming, you probably think about self-driving tractors, but you're thinking shouldn't stop there. Fully autonomous pivots and completely connected crop management are closer than you realize. The goal of agriculture - and especially irrigation - is to produce greater yields with fewer inputs. But what does that mean? For starters, it means less water, lower energy bills and decreased labor costs, not to mention an improved quality of life. As machines located in fields for decades, center pivots are uniquely positioned to become data hubs and drive a revolution in artificial intelligence and machine learning to take data from reactive to predictive. This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 - Irrigation Training category.
