Precision Ag Summit

Welcome!

We are excited to present the inaugural Precision Ag Summit at Fletcher Technical Community College, 1407 Highway 311, Schriever, LA 70395. The Summit will provide educational opportunities for agricultural producers/farmers, and other agricultural industry professionals, about agriculture technology that is available in farm equipment, specifically in John Deere and Case IH tractors. 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. Our Summit partners include Sunshine Quality Solutions and Progressive Tractor and Implement featuring Case IH tractors.

Drones Course

Fletcher is also offering our Drones course at a special price. The course provides instruction on how to safely maneuver drones within commercial National Airspace, and prepares participants for the FAA Part 107 test. The course begins with online instruction/classroom theory for 2 weeks, and ends with two 4-hour in-person flight time sessions of hands-on drone equipment training, which will be held February 24 (for 4 hours) and February 25 (for 4 hours). The cut-off date for participating in the Drones class is February 12, 2021. More information on the course can be found here: https://www.fletcher.edu/skill-trade-industrial-courses/.
