Proceedings of the Integrated Crop Management Conference
Iowa State University Conferences and Symposia

The Iowa State University Integrated Crop Management Conference is Iowa's premier crop production education event. No other program in Iowa brings together the diverse range of topics, slate of expert presenters and results of the latest University research.

The ICM Conference offers workshops focusing on the latest in crop production technology. Experts from Iowa and surrounding states will provide research updates and results in soil fertility, soil and water management, crop production and pest management.

Abstract

Research over the past decade has shown that precision farming technologies offer great potential to increase the profitability of com production in Iowa. Producers who have invested in these technologies, however, are still trying to learn how to capture some of these profits. Experience clearly indicates that producers cannot increase their profits by using the new technologies merely to apply old management guidelines more precisely. Mounting evidence suggests that the great potential of precision farming technologies is realized only when the new technologies are used to develop better guidelines for management.
