This is Dr. Nathan Mueller, your local agronomist with Nebraska Extension. Our team will be offering three more 2-day Precision Ag Data Management Workshops across Nebraska. We completed our first 2-day workshop near Mead was this past Monday and Tuesday with 20 producers, consultants, and other Ag professionals. These hands-on workshops demonstrate methods for extracting more information from you precision Ag Data. The workshops combine short lectures with tutorials using Ag Leader SMS Advanced Software on laptops. We are limited to 20 attendees per day, so please register early! Registration includes printed learning guides, a jumpdrive with workshop tutorials and data, lunch, and continuing education units for CCAs.
