Improving Farm Profitability with Precision Conservation – Iowa Learning Farms Webinar
January 6, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
AMES, Iowa — How to improve farm profitability with the use of precision conservation will be the topic of the Iowa Learning Farms webinar on Wednesday, January 6 at noon.
Precision agricultural (ag) technology can inform many management decisions on the farm, including identifying underperforming acres. In these low-yielding acres, conservation can improve profitability and result in increased return-on-investment.
During this webinar, Josh Divan, precision ag & conservation specialist at Iowa Pheasants Forever, will discuss how precision conservation can increase profitability, improve wildlife habitat, build soil health, increase water quality, and improve resiliency.
“By looking at your farm data through a profitability lens, you can better understand where you have financial risk in your farm operation. Developing a plan that minimizes that risk, while simultaneously increasing your profitability is the goal of precision conservation,” said Divan.
Divan works with farmers and their precision ag data to first identify unprofitable acres within their operation and then helps them understand how laser-focused conservation programs on those “red” acres can improve their bottom line.
