Digital Agriculture

Digital AgricultureDigital Ag continues to evolve as industry develops services and technologies to permit the wireless transmissions of data along with analytics to derive information. The premise of digital agriculture includes the advancement of farm operations through implementation of precision agriculture strategies, prescriptive agriculture and the hot topic of big data. FABE Extension educators strive to provide Ohio growers the information they need to navigate new technologies in order to increase sustainability and profitability. 

 

efields 

eFields represents an Ohio State University program dedicated to advancing production agriculture through the use of field-scale research. This program utilizes modern technologies and information to conduct on-farm studies with an educational and demonstration component used to help farmers and their advisors understand how new practices and techniques can improve farm efficiency and profitability. The program is also dedicated to delivering timely and relevant, data-driven, actionable information. Current projects are focused on precision nutrient management strategies and technologies to improve efficiency of fertilizer placement, enable on-farm evaluation, automate machine functionality, enhance placement of pesticides and seed, and to develop analytical tools for digital agriculture.
