Virginia Tech will host Precision Agriculture Day on Oct. 12 at Kentland Farm in Blacksburg from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Participants will have the opportunity to get answers to common questions about the benefits of precision agriculture and learn how they can establish cost-effective technologies on their farms.
Precision agriculture is becoming increasingly utilized — and economical — in recent years as producers use technology, such as iPads, GPS, and variable rate equipment, to increase yields and inform management decisions.
Registration information for the event, which costs $10, can be found online. Kentland Farm is about eight minutes from the Virginia Tech campus at 5250 Whitethorne Road.
