Precision Ag Summit. February 23-24, 2022. Fletcher Technical Community College

Precision Ag Summit

Welcome!

We are excited to present the 2022 Precision Ag Summit at Fletcher Technical Community College.

The Summit will provide an opportunity for agricultural producers and industry professionals to gather and exchange ideas about precision agriculture best practices and techniques to be incorporated into real-world use on today’s farms.

Attendees will have an opportunity to learn from and ask questions of industry leaders from Lemman’s Farm Supply, a Case IH dealership; Sunshine Quality Solutions, a John Deere dealership; Louisiana Agricultural Consultants Association; C. Richard and Associates; amongst others. In addition, various leaders from the agriculture industry will be on hand for our inaugural ‘Showcase.’ Showcase participants will be available to share their agricultural programs, products, and expertise with attendees. Showcase participants include Katie Sistrunk with A Farmer’s Daugther to discuss H2A labor policy; representatives from USDA’s Farm Service Agency; USDA’s Natural Resource Conservation Service; Lemann’s Farm Supply; Sunshine Quality Solutions; and others. If you or your agriculture-related company is interested in participating in the Showcase, please email lori.richard@fletcher.edu for more information.

The Summit will be held February 23-24 at our main campus, 1407 Highway 311, Schriever, LA 70395. We will also bring awareness to new agriculture programming that will be available at Fletcher, including short-term training and an associate degree in agriculture mechanics and precision agriculture.
