A weekly webinar series featuring Purdue University experts in data science and digital agriculture will kick off at 12:30 p.m. ET Thursday (Feb. 4).

Each Thursday this spring, the Data Driven Agriculture webinars will explore ways digital agriculture and data science can advance agriculture today and into the future.

“Building on the momentum of last fall’s digital agriculture webinars, we wanted to highlight how data is not only being used today but also explore its future potential,” said Dennis Buckmaster, agricultural and biological engineering professor and dean’s fellow of digital agriculture at Purdue.

“In this series, researchers from across the College of Agriculture – and beyond – will showcase how they are using data to improve crop, livestock and forest management decisions, increase produce safety, quickly identify disease outbreaks in livestock and much more.”

The webinars start at 12:30 p.m. ET each Thursday starting on Feb. 4 and running through May 13. Speakers will present for the first 30 minutes followed by a live chat where participants can ask questions.


The webinars are free, but registration is requested.

The presentations will be recorded and posted on the Purdue Digital Ag Resources website. This series is supported in part by the Wabash Heartland Innovation Network.
