Precision Technology Option
Know the future of farming. Geospatial technology allows today’s farmers to optimize input, reduce waste and generate the maximum possible yields.
As as student in this option, you’ll get hands-on experience with hydraulics, electronics, GPS, as well as software applications for data collection and analysis. Expect to learn installation, troubleshooting, and servicing precision technology on planters, sprayers, and other equipment used in the field. You will have the opportunity to master the latest technical, operational and software applications for John Deere, Case IH, Raven, Trimble, and Ag Chem precision systems.
Expect lots of active, “real time” learning as you gather and use data from the Lake Area Tech demonstration farm and area co-op farms. You will also have two internship opportunities with co-ops, private businesses, producers and/or your home farm operation.
