Agricultural Technology Day – Automation in Specialty Crops

August 22 @ 1:30 pm - 6:00 pm


WSU’s Center for Precision & Automated Agriculture Systems (CPAAS) will host Agriculture Technology Day at the WSU IAREC-Prosser Ag Tech Building from 1:30pm to 6 pm August 22.

Experts from WSU, the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries, Microsoft FarmBeats and ASI Robots will share updates on cutting-edge agricultural advances with growers, agricultural industry professionals, and crop consultants.

This year’s event explores the theme of automation in specialty crop production, and includes field demonstrations and discussions of digital agriculture solutions, automation in farm operations, robotics in specialty crops, intelligent orchard sprayers, a survey of autonomy on the farm, and regulations on autonomous vehicles use in Washington farming.

Participants can interact with WSU researchers and provide valuable feedback both during the sessions and at a networking social. Snacks and drinks will be provided.

Admission is free. Register at Brown Paper Tickets by Aug. 16, 2019 to attend.
