LANSING, Mich. — Participants learned on Friday how to better use technology to increase a farm's bottom line.

Experts from across the country demonstrated the use of tech to improve farm efficiencies and aid in making decisions to actually improve yields, increase profit margins, and reduce the impact on the environment.

The daylong event was like an educational field day for some, with training on Restricted Use Pesticides, soil and water management, crop management, and more.

It was a well-attended free event held at MSU Farms on College Road.
