There are a number of main campus and extension service faculty and researchers that are exploring precision water, planting, and spraying topics, as well as the use of automation in harvesting a variety of agricultural products. Many OSU researchers work in collaboration with USDA scientists to advance the use of technology in agriculture. For more information on faculty in the College of Agriculture that have an interest in precision agriculture and farming, please contact John Talbott.
