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 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.

Farm Data Ownership

K-State precision agricultural economist Terry Griffin discusses some of the current thinking on the ownership of farm data, and whether producers would be wise to "go off the grid" with their data. He maintains that the value of that data diminishes greatly by isolating it in an attempt to keep it private.

Precision Ag Issues

K-State precision agricultural economist Terry Griffin reports on the topics that generated the most discussion at a major precision agriculture technology conference that he attended last week in Scotland....he also talks about his current research into the economics of using precision guidance cultivation as an alternative to herbicide use against resistant weed populations.
