Northwest Iowa Community College and Agrivision Equipment Group Host

1st Annual 2019 Precision Ag Expo

Northwest Iowa Community College and AgriVision Equipment Group are excited to announce the 1st Annual Agrivision Equipment Group 2019 Precision Ag Expo. The Expo will be held Monday, July 15, from 9am–3pm on the campus of Northwest Iowa Community College.

Megan Dieken, NCC’s Youth Programming Event Coordinator, explained, “This is a great opportunity for students who have interest not only in farming and agriculture but also those who are interested in the technology and business collaboration that makes it all possible. AgriVision is bringing industry leading subject matter experts to educate the students and any accompanying instructors about the latest in precision ag technology and farming equipment. Not only that, but the students will actually operate all the equipment. Everything will be hands-on so this is a perfect learning opportunity for FFA Chapters along with any student interested in agriculture at any level.”

Dieken continued, “The other exciting component to this Expo is the FFA leaders can earn Professional Development dollars, have individual time with tech experts on how to integrate this into their local chapter, and enter their group for cool prizes that they can use for later projects.”


Topics include:

• Auto-Guidance Systems

• GPS

• Precision Application

• Remote Sensing

• Geographic Information Systems

• Data Collection/Management

 

Hands-on opportunities with equipment:

• Combine


• Tractor


• Planter

• Sprayer

There will be a FREE lunch, snacks, and a t-shirt for each participant. Students will also be able to win prizes for their FFA program and participate in a drone scavenger hunt.
