(12/03/18) BATON ROUGE, La. — The LSU AgCenter will host a conference on data and technology in agriculture on Jan. 29.

The event will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the State Evacuation Shelter on U.S. Highway 71 near Alexandria.

Several AgCenter experts will present information about digital and precision agriculture — fields of study that deal with using technology to collect and interpret data to make farming more efficient.

Terry Griffin, an assistant professor at Kansas State University, will deliver a keynote address on the value of “big data” to agriculture.

After a lunch break, Louisiana farmers will take part in a panel discussion on data topics.

The conference also will feature a trade show, giving attendees a chance to talk to representatives of leading Louisiana agri-businesses. Vendors interested in having a booth should contact AgCenter agent R.L. Frazier at RFrazier@agcenter.lsu.edu.
