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.
