Applying technology to crop production through mechanization, fertilizers, crop protection chemistry, genetics, and other innovations have resulted in significant gains in productivity and efficiency. The application of information technology to crop production, known as precision agriculture, has already transformed many aspects of crop production and will continue to do so in the future.
The Precision Agriculture course enables professionals to better understand the science of site- specific farming so they can help themselves, their customers, and their companies. Designed for professionals who are pursuing an education while continuing to balance work, family, and other responsibilities, this course includes 24/7 access so that learners can review content at their convenience on their computer, tablet or mobile device.
The twelve weekly modules include over 90 HD video lessons featuring leaders in precision agriculture, along with supplemental reading, graphics, glossaries, links to additional information, downloadable slides, and tests. Learners will want to plan on one to two hours of study each week, but they can work ahead if they want.. Through a combination of teaching techniques, this course connects with a variety of learning styles.
