Precision Agriculture Technology

About

Our Precision Agriculture Technology program offers education and hands-on training in spatial information systems, remote sensing, GNSS Data Collection, and Crop Management Zones, among other agriculture-related studies.

Recent developments in unmanned aircraft, entomology, plant pathology, and weed science, in conjunction with advanced technologies such as remote sensing, global positioning, geographic information systems, and variable rate technology, are dynamically influencing agricultural productivity. Implementation of these technologies can greatly improve environmental quality by reducing the volume of agricultural chemicals applied. The emergence of these technologies has increased the demand for technically trained workers in the field of precision agriculture.

Hinds Community College’s Precision Agriculture Technology program is a great opportunity for those looking to begin a career at the intersection of science, engineering, and agriculture. If you are looking for a way to solve global problems and have a strong desire to improve farmlands for future generations, this is the program for you.
