Precision Agriculture

The next generation for agriculture starts with you and the LRSC Precision Ag program. With a degree in Precision Agriculture from LRSC, graduates are prepared to work in production agriculture back at his/her farming operation; join a variety of agri-businesses that work with various aspects of production agriculture; create a company/service; or continue on for further degrees.

Efficiency has spurred the adoption of various forms of precision agriculture technologies. The variability in soils and surrounding ecosystems demand better use of information to benefit all. The technology that precision agriculture offers collects immense amounts of data that assists in making field management decisions.
