Topic: Smart Farming: The Digital Revolution in Agriculture

As the digital revolution reaches the agriculture industry, smart farming hopes to use information to make agriculture more productive and sustainable. What digital technologies and tools are emerging, how will these technologies change farming, and what challenges will we need to overcome to realize the vision?


Elizabeth’s research interests include using on-farm research to identify methods to increase farm profits including improved crop yields, better management of resources, and the employment of effective precision agriculture technologies. She is using on-farm research to better understand how to make precision technologies like site-specific and prescriptive agriculture work, both agronomically and economically.
