UAV Coach Partners with PrecisionAg Vision
BY Zacc Dukowitz6 July 2017
We’re excited to announce our media partnership with PrecisionAg Vision, an annual conference helping to push precision agriculture forward—including agriculture involving sUAS—that will be held this year in Phoenix, AZ from October 10-12.
Work with drones in agriculture?
The annual PrecisionAg Vision Conference will be held for the second time this fall, and if you’re into ag drones—or are thinking about getting into them—this is the event for you. In fact, it’s for you if you’re just into agriculture, and haven’t even considered using drones in your operations (though we’ll admit, we have trouble understanding how that could be possible 🙂 ).
Enter to win!
As a media partner, we’ve been given 1 VIP pass (valued at $2,000) to distribute to our community members. Woot!

About PrecisionAg Vision 2017
The conference this year is titled “The State of the Industry—Precision in Row and Specialty Crop Production: Exploring the Connective Tissue between Existing and Emerging Technologies.”
The event is being put on by Meister Media, one of the leading, globally focused media companies in the agriculture space. They’ve been producing agriculture-focused publications and face-to-face events for over 80 years, which is a track record of ten (to twenty!) times longer than most drone events can claim.
This year’s conference will have a strategic focus on the future of farm digitization and precision agriculture, and looks to attract a global audience of the highest-level stakeholders: growers, service providers, investors, regulators, and technology disruptors.
The special points of focus will be:
- Water + Irrigation
- Water Management
- Sensors + Iot
- Food Safety
Building on the foundation of the inaugural event last year, conference attendees will work through key challenges facing agronomic and specialty crop markets, building towards solutions that cut across all functions and regions.
For those who choose to participate, a closer focus on developments in critical technological areas will be combined with a hands-on site visit, with the goal of providing senior management insight into which precision advances should be utilized in their businesses currently, as well as what to expect in two to three seasons.
Here are some quick details about the event:
- 140+ companies will be attending (see a list of some of the attending organizations here)
- 12 countries will be represented by attendees and presenters combined
- 500+ attendees expected (and counting)

Who Will Be Presenting?
The invited speakers at PrecisionAg Vision 2016 was a who’s who of the agriculture industry, and the 2017 speaker list promises to be even more impressive.
The 2016 list came from a survey of constituents, who were simply asked who the thought leaders were in the ag space. The same approach is being taken this year, and the final list will be announced within the next few months.

Who Should Attend?
If you want to know more about precision agriculture and where it’s headed, this is the event for you.
Here are four reasons to consider attending:
1. Solutions-based education
Work through challenging problems and build toward solutions that cut across all functions and regions using precision agriculture. Take home practical lessons learned from growers, service providers, and colleagues working in like production systems in other parts of the nation and world.
The conference provides a unique opportunity to connect with ag technology influencers across a variety of networking platforms. Delegates will establish senior-level contacts and foster a dialogue that endures after the conference’s end.
3. Meeting with technology developers and suppliers
Gain an accurate and well-informed vision of ag technology’s three-year horizon.
4. Get an “in the field” perspective with a pre-conference tour
Match learnings and contacts gleaned from the conference with a real-world view of Arizona’s agricultural technology and the University of Arizona Robotics System.
