I was happy to interview Anne recently and to discuss her work using UAS- and satellite-based imagery to support crop management decisions. Anne’s ability to effectively use this technology on the diverse crops of the Willamette Valley is impressive and at the end she shares her hopes for the next five years of precision agriculture in the region.

We’re starting a podcast

Because our ability to hold workshops has been limited by Coronavirus restrictions, we’re launching a podcast this Spring. We’re planning to start with a few episodes of instructional content to get everyone on the same page. Then we’ll interview agricultural researchers and growers who use UAS in the field.

We plan to keep episodes short and snappy. A podcast format makes it possible to learn while you travel between fields or drive a tractor. We’ll post supplemental graphics and information here for the things that aren’t so easy to learn by audio.
