Precision Conservation

Creating ‘win-win’ solutions for agricultural producers and natural resource conservation

Our focus is to create opportunities for agricultural producers to maximize whole-field profitability while reducing impacts on our natural resources (e.g., reduction in soil erosion, water runoff, etc.). Our inter-disciplinary research team strives to integrate agronomy, economics, human dimensions, precision agriculture, and spatial modeling to benefit the larger society in agricultural landscapes.
