    Day One will focus on the acquiring and analyzing some of the more basic data layers (soil sampling, field boundaries, and yield) that are necessary to get started in variable rate management. The day will be focused on presentations by project team members along with brief, guided exercises using SMS software from Ag Leader. Actual datasets will be used for these exercises to give attendees a real-world experience with Precision Ag data analysis.

    Day Two will focus more on developing variable rate plans for field applications and on-farm research trials. Presentations from the project team will be coupled with data analysis exercises to help attendees understand the different methods available for creating prescriptions.
