Terry Griffin

Farm Management, Cropping Systems, Precision Agriculture

Assistant Professor 
Kansas State University

Terry Griffin’s research and extension programs focus on cropping systems economics in general, and specifically precision agricultural technologies and big data. Precision ag data in a community has evolved Terry’s program to include ‘big data’ specifically the automation of economic decision making tools. Current projects include farm management decision making under weather uncertainty, profitable automated variable rate irrigation applications, valuation of precision agriculture data, and farmland values.

Precision Ag Survey

K-State agricultural economist Beth Yeager and Terry Griffin discuss their latest analysis of the adoption of precision agricultural technologies by Kansas farmers...they've surveyed members of the Kansas Farm Management Association about the kinds of technologies they've been utilizing, as well as the technology upgrades they tend to favor.

Precision Ag "Down Under"

K-State precision agricultural engineer Terry Griffin reflects on his recent assignment in Australia, where he met with leading agricultural producers in the state of Victoria and learned about their adoption of precision agriculture technology and their approaches to data management. He tells of things he picked up that would potentially interest producers here in Kansas.

Precision Agriculture Conference

Precision agricultural engineer Ajay Sharda and precision agricultural economist Terry Griffin of K-State look ahead to the 2018 Kansas Agricultural Technologies Conference being co-hosted by K-State in two weeks. They'll visit about several of the up-and-coming technologies that will be discussed in full at this conference, encouraging all interested producers to attend.

Tax Basis Tool

K-State agricultural economist Terry Griffin and Texas A&M agricultural law specialist Tiffany Lashmet talk about the new on-line aid that they have created for agricultural producers to use when determining the capital gains tax liability of a land sale, especially when the value of that land upon inheritance is unknown. They developed a series of tables for each of the continental 48 states that producers can use to calculate an estimate of the stepped-up basis for their property.

Precision Technology Adoption

K-State precision technology economist Terry Griffin shares the findings of his latest study of farmer adoption of precision cropping technologies...this time, his work concentrated on the technology "bundles" that producers gravitate toward, and how that relates to the frequency that producers transition to variable-rate technologies.

Precision Ag Adoption

K-State precision agriculture economist Terry Griffin reports on his new study of how quickly farmers adopt new precision cropping technology, based on a survey of Kansas Farm Management Association members. It suggests that the sooner producers employ new technology, the more inclined they are to adopt the next technological advance.
