Learn how to extract more information from your precision agriculture data at the 2016 Nebraska Extension Precision Ag Data Management workshops this winter. Presentations and hands-on exercises will cover yield data quality, geospatial data collection, multi-layer analysis and imagery analysis.
Participants get hands-on training to learn how to get more use from their precision agriculture data. A two all-day workshop will be held at Clay Center with the first day addressing intermediate ag data management topics, while the second day will address more advanced ag data management. Individuals can register for one or both days. Workshops begin with check-in at 8:30 a.m. and sessions from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Cost is $75 for one day or $130 for both. Registration includes printed learning guides, a jump drive with workshop tutorials attendees can reference at home, and data.
Day One, Intermediate Ag Data Management Topics:
- Working with as-applied data, tracking product locations and rates
- Creating templates to speed up the data import process
- Terrain analysis diagnostic opportunities and working with LiDAR data
- Georeferenced soil sample data input and prescription map development options
- Setting up on farm research trials with precision ag data – case study from Project SENSE: Crop Canopy Sensors for In-Season Nitrogen Management
Day Two, Advanced Ag Data Management:
- Generating maps from geo-referenced soil samples: Map interpolation strategies
- Improving Yield Monitor Data Accuracy with Yield Editor Software from USDA
- Multi-layer geospatial analysis to determine hybrid performance across changing landscapes
- Imagery analysis using data from active and passive sensors
On-line preregistration is required and class size is limited to 20 to facilitate the hands-on training. To register online, visit the program website.
