Satellite, GPS technology in farming highlighted at forum

Matt Liskai, co-owner of Green Field Ag, will discuss how farmers are changing the way they manage crops through precision agriculture, at the Northwest Ohio Ag-Business Breakfast Forum, Thursday, June 21, 2018, from 8 – 9:30 a.m.  The event is hosted by the Center for Innovative Food Technology (CIFT) at the Agricultural Incubator Foundation (AIF).

Precision agriculture involves the use of Global Positioning System, or GPS, via satellites to more accurately manage crop yield. Liskai will discuss real-time kinematic technology – a satellite navigation technique used to enhance the precision of position data derived from satellite-based positioning systems, remote sensing technology, variable rate technology, spray control, GPS soil sampling, and more.

Green Field Ag, with locations in Gibsonburg, Ohio and Warren, Indiana, provides precision agriculture technology to farmers, including satellite guidance, farm drainage, and precise application equipment solutions.

Arrive early, as breakfast and informal networking will start at 8 a.m., with the program to follow. The cost is just $10 per person when you RSVP in advance or $12 per person at the door without RSVP (cash or check) which includes breakfast and networking opportunities.

The Northwest Ohio Ag-Business Breakfast Forum is an educational networking opportunity to provide information on current issues, trends and programs available to the agricultural community and those who support its advancement.

The AIF is located at 13737 Middleton Pike (St. Rt. 582) in Bowling Green. Walk-ins are welcome, but guests are encouraged to reserve a seat in advance by visiting ciftinnovation.org.
