Precision agriculture conference coming up in Salina in January

Early registration – and discounted prices – for the annual Kansas Ag Research and Technology Association conference is being offered by the nonprofit organization.

The 16th annual Precision Agricultural Technologies Conference will be Jan. 17-18 in Salina. The event brings together agricultural producers and industry leaders for a two-day interactive workshop on the precision agriculture industry.

According to a news release from the organization, those who sign up by Jan. 10 can receive a $50 discount, bringing the conference price to $175 per person (which includes meals and refreshments).

Funds generated through association dues and conference registrations are used to provide grants to facilitate on-farm research projects and instructional workshops that are conducted to help spread use of the findings from that research, according to the news release.
