Sentinel Fertigation's Sunset Seminars to Feature Central Platte NRD Producers


GRAND ISLAND, Nebraska -- Producers are encouraged to attend a Sentinel Fertigation Sunset Seminar in August. Central Platte NRD producers Arnie Hinkson, Wood River, and Don Batie, Lexington, will feature their research sites on Aug. 3 and Aug. 10 as Sentinel Fertigation joins forces with innovative farmers, Nebraska's Natural Resource Districts, and the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network to host the Fertigation Sunset Seminars at trial field sites across Nebraska.

“If a farmer is wondering how to enhance their nitrogen management practices and is curious about technologies that can help them achieve their goals, this event is for them,” said Jackson Stansell, Sentinel’s Founder & CEO. “This is a tremendous opportunity to see how N-Time ™ is working on a real field, with a real farmer in real time. All events will discuss data comparing N-Time™ recommendations with grower practices.”

The informal and informative evening events will give growers and agronomists a chance to see how N-Time™ works and how it can influence nitrogen management outcomes. Seminars are being hosted by growers who have trialed N-Time™ this growing season and experienced its impact on their farms. N-Time™ is Sentinel’s flagship software system that analyzes field imagery to detect early signs of crop nitrogen stress and provides growers with timely fertilizer application recommendations, developed through research and proven through trials.

Data collected from the on-farm pilots will be presented by representatives from UNL, providing growers with data quantifying N-Time’s impacts on nitrogen use efficiency while maintaining or improving yield. Effects of other nitrogen management technologies will also be discussed at some locations.

In addition to UNL’s presentation, the Sentinel Team will demonstrate exactly how N-Time™ functions and how it can be implemented with advanced fertigation systems. After the demo, host growers will have the opportunity to talk about their experiences and answer questions about using image-based fertigation technology. Light snacks and beverages will be provided during the seminars, followed by an unstructured Q&A and mingling.
