The February 20 program will feature Dr. Elizabeth Hawkins, Field Specialist, Agronomic Systems with OSU Extension sharing her Soybean Populations information.
Hawkin’s research interests include using on-farm research to identify methods to increase farm profits including improved crop yields, better management of resources, and the employment of effective precision agriculture technologies. She is using on-farm research to better understand how to make precision technologies like site-specific and prescriptive agriculture work, both agronomically and economically. Before coming to The Ohio State University to specialize in in Precision Agriculture, Agronomic Crop Production, On-Farm Research, Hawkins earned degrees from Purdue and the University of Illinois.
