The University of Saskatchewan has launched a new Precision Agriculture Certificate program. The program will prepare students from the College of Agriculture and Bioresources, the College of Engineering, and the Department of Computer Science to become ag tech leaders. Students will learn how to manage crops and identify factors that drive crop yield variability using precision agriculture technologies such as satellite imagery, global positioning and information systems, and big data. “With this new certificate program, we continue to equip students with the critical thinking skills they need that will go beyond when a certain technology may become obsolete,” said USask Agriculture and Bioresources Dean Dr Angela Bedard-Haughn.
