SSCC hosts Feb. 28 workshop on Precision Agriculture


A one-day workshop in Precision Agriculture for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) will be offered 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28, on the Central Campus of Southern State Community College, 100 Hobart Drive, Hillsboro.

Southern State is pleased to announce a partnership with Sinclair Community College to bring the workshop to the region. Sinclair has become a leader in creating a national center for UAS training and certification that meets the demands of this evolving field.

In precision agriculture, UAS operations offer the potential of higher crop yields, more precise application of treatments, early detection of crop health issues, and increased revenues. Workshop participants will review the current state and future potential of UAS in precision agriculture.

The workshop fee is $495 and capacity is limited to 30 participants. Reservations are requested by Feb. 24. For more information or to register, please contact Kim Fitzpatrick at 800-628-7722, ext. 4684, or
