In today's world, its not uncommon for producers to use technology in their operations.
The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will host an Ag Technology Workshop in Corpus Christi to train farmers and ranchers how to use iPhones and iPads to make decisions in the field.
Jay Yates and Jackie Smith, extension program specialists from Lubbock, will train producers to use applications to effectively manage risk and increase profitability of their business.
Producers can learn ways to access market data to help evaluate pricing strategies, improve knowledge of break-even costs and learn about other applications related to marketing, budgeting, irrigation and various time-saving calculators and tools, according to the news release. The workshop will be split between novice and seasoned users.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own devices, but there will be iPads available with applications for them to use for hands-on demonstrations, according to the news release.
