South Dakota Ag News Headlines
Yes, It’s New but It Can Save You Time, Money and Improve Natural Resources
South Dakota Ag Connection - 04/13/2023

There is countless technology-based equipment available to farmers and increasingly to ranchers, that can detect issues and determine solutions far faster than someone driving through a field or pasture can. Incorporating such technology saves time and input costs.

Yet many producers in South Dakota are slow to adopt the time and money-saving technology.

A grant received by South Dakota State University will be used to address that.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced USDA awarded $40 million to 31 conservation projects across the U.S. through its Conservation Innovation Grants program.

SDSU received about $1.28 million in funding for a project entitled, “Overcoming Climate Smart Adoption Barriers by Demonstrating the Value of Linking No-Tillage, Cover Crops, and Enhanced N Management into a Single System.”

The project is focused on overcoming barriers in implementing climate-smart ag practices, including no-till farming, planting cover crops, and utilizing smart fertilizer technologies, in South Dakota.
