Virtual Agronomy 101


Join 500+ learners who took a free 6-lesson course to learn how to take your grower support even further in 2020 season.

Course invitation from our founder

Hear the WHY for this course from FluroSat founder and how she wants to help crop advisers around the world adopt digital tools in these changing times.
"To support our new and existing customers in times of #covid in the rapid adoption of digital tools, we are offering an educational course that covers best practices of using data-driven insights to build and strengthen grower relationships, virtually." - Anastasia Volkova, PhD.

Industry leaders are urging their agronomists to reinvent themselves

A head agronomist and manager at one of the major U.S. seed & chemical companies leading a team of a couple of hundred employees noted:

This is a time that employees will either get ahead or fall behind. It will be the ones that are proactive in learning about digital agronomy tools and new ways to relate with their growers that will be successful. Relating with growers and building relationships virtually is going to be the new normal for a while and now is the time to learn how to adapt and excel this 2020 season.

To end up on top, they have to be willing to change rather than waiting it out. It’s going to be a long time before we’ll be doing things like we have done before. The agronomist of tomorrow is going to look different. They are going to have to reinvent themselves.

What do the course attendees say?

“I’ve been trudging and riding over fields all my life, and have been in one spot for the last 15 years now and scout fields up to twice a week so I’m the one who knows the issues and problems but understanding the extent is the really valuable stuff for me. Putting some number on yield loss on fields with constraints and particularly how this affects different crop species and varieties is going to be big. ”

“I love your examples and specific situations where the technology is applicable and how to use it to diagnose problems. ”
VAg101 course participant
“I have very limited knowledge of agronomy, but have a keen interest in remote sensing. This course has been really interesting, and I'm enjoying the way you explain and demonstrate the integration of multiple sources of information. I think remote sensing is an incredibly powerful tool, and if we as extension workers can do a good job at communicating its value and how to interpret the data in a simple way then we will see massive benefits across many ag sectors. ”
