The theme of a special field day Tuesday August 24 at the Northeast Research Farm near Nashua is "Precision Agriculture--What We're Learning." The field day begins at 1:30 p.m. and will showcase the activities of a 3-year precision agriculture demonstration project organized by Iowa State University and Hawkeye Community College. Management decisions on the 40-acre project site have been made based on integrated crop management principles and information gathered with the latest global positioning system/geographic information system technologies. Information on soil fertility, crop growth and development, and pest levels has been collected and correlated to final crop yields. Observations, conclusions, and recommendations as well as new questions raised will be shared at the following wagon stops
