Precision conservation is an emerging technique in digital agriculture that uses spatial data to inform decisions about where to implement conservation practices and potentially which conservation practices would be most beneficial. Dr. Andrew "Andy" Little, Assistant Professor and Landscape and Habitat Management Extension Specialist, joins this FarmBits episode to provide an overview of precision conservation and discuss the work that he and his lab team are doing to further conservation practices using digital agriculture. Andy tells us a little bit about his background, describes how digital tools are changing the way that conservation practices may be implemented, and overviews the programs and projects that producers can get involved in if they're interested in conservation. Conservation practices are expected to be an important part of sustainable agriculture moving forward so this episode is well worth the listen.
