Research

The Precision Agriculture Center is a hub for conducting multi- and inter-disciplinary research in Minnesota, the United States, and in countries around the world. Center affiliates develop and implement innovative techniques to help understand the spatial and temporal variability that exists in agriculture. Our researchers are driven to discover more effective methods for managing agriculture and are motivated to transfer that technology to producers and industry parnters.

The FacultyGraduate Students, and Visiting Scholars affiliated with the Center utilize some of the most sophisticated equipment to push our scientific understanding to the limits.

See the Projects page to see a sampling of some of the research and technology transfer currently taking place through the Center.
