The OSU Extension Office in Fulton County will be holding its 3rd Annual Northwest Ohio Precision Agriculture Technology Day on Tuesday, August 5th from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm at the Fulton County Fairgrounds in Wauseon.  This year the event will focus on combines, precision harvest technology, grain handling and data collection. Archbold Equipment Case IH, John Deere Kenn-Feld Group, and Ohio Ag Equipment with Lexion and Gleaner combines are headline sponsors for this event and will have their newest combines on hand for farmers and Certified Crop Consultants (CCA) to view.

            The event will start with registration and sponsor exhibits at 8:00 am in the Junior Fair Building.  In the morning, participants will hear from Extension and Ag industry professionals who will be discussing agronomics, technology, safety and data collection. The first session will feature Dr. John Fulton, OSUE’s new Machine and Precision Systems Specialist, to discuss using data telematics to make informed agronomic decisions.  Fulton County Sheriff, Roy Miller, will give comments on harvest safety and Dr. Scott Shearer, Chair of the OSU Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering, will discuss all the latest technology used to harvest data while harvesting grain.  Ohio Ag Net’s Dale Minyo will be present to kick off their Western Ohio crop tour.

            Perhaps the most valuable part of the day will be the clinic demonstrations after lunch.  Case IH, Gleaner, John Deere and Lexion representatives will all instruct farmers and CCAs on how to adjust their machine and calibrate harvest technology prior to this fall’s harvest. Producers will have a chance to interact and dialogue with manufacturers and their corresponding technology representatives.  Additional sponsors of the event include Buckeye Application, Channel Seed, Conservation Action Project, Consolidated Grain and Barge, Custom Agri Systems, DuPont Pioneer/Encirca, First Federal Bank of the Midwest, Green Field AG LLC, Precision Ag Services, Inc., and Williamson Insurance Agency.

The event is free and open to the public but RSVPs are needed to get an accurate lunch count.  Please contact the OSU Extension Office at 419-337-9210 or with name and email to get registered by August 2nd.  For a complete agenda and list of sponsors, click here for flyer.  The Fulton County Fairgrounds are located at 8591 State Route 108, Wauseon, OH 43567.
