JASM is pleased to announce an online event: "Smart Agriculture and its Benefits" by Katsutoshi Mizuta on October 27 at 6 PM.
Smart agriculture has demonstrated its great possibilities to enhance crop productivity, economic returns, and environmental quality. The farmers use various sensors and data to optimize fertilizer application, irrigation, and soil nutrient leaching. This presentation reviews some advanced practices and technologies implemented in the US and world. A drone flight will follow to be demonstrated in a field nearby.
Katsutoshi Mizuta, originally from Japan received a PhD, is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Minnesota Precision Agriculture Center. He is leading a multistate precision nitrogen management research project in collaboration with Purdue University. He received his BS in environmental engineering in 2014. He also received both his MS majoring in soil and water sciences (SWS) in 2016 and his PhD majoring in SWS (minoring in food and resource economics). He also has experience in research from a local to regional scale with cutting-edge technologies (machine learning; proximal, airborne, and satellite remote sensing) based on big data of soil, crop, biome, climate, terrain, and geology.
In his free time, he enjoys playing tennis and spending time with his family.
We are looking forward to seeing you there!
