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.

Profitability Maps for Cropland

K-State precision agricultural economist Terry Griffin talks about developing profitability maps for crop ground...coupling yield monitor and site-specific crop input data with crop price information to precisely identify the areas of the field which are generating profits, and which aren't...he says more producers are finding this to be a beneficial practice.

Producers Wanted for Farm Data Project

K-State precision agricultural economist Terry Griffin invites producers to take part in a new initiative called the Data-Intensive Farm Management Project...supported by a major USDA grant, this will make available to participants precision cropping analytical tools to evaluate site-specific crop seeding and nutrient applications, in real-life situations on the farm.

Estimating Farmland Value

K-State agricultural economist Terry Griffin talks about a new tool that he has developed for estimating farmland value for a given year using the current value of that land...using annual value indexes for every year since 1950, the user can determine the tax liability of farmland transactions.

Calculating Farm Machinery Costs

K-State agricultural economist Gregg Ibendahl and Terry Griffin talk about a new online tool that farmers can use to calculate farm machinery costs...as input for making machinery purchase decisions, as a basis for comparing lease vs. purchase options, or for weighing the choice of custom hiring an operation instead of investing in equipment...they say it's an easy-to-use tool that can provide very useful information.

Least-Cost Fertilizer Options

K-State agricultural economists Terry Griffin and Gregg Ibendahl talk about a different approach to determining least-cost crop fertilizer options for producers, using an economic tool that they've developed that's now available to crop growers and retail fertilizer vendors alike.

Variable-Rate Fertilizer Applications

K-State precision agriculture economist Terry Griffin is joined by a gerontologist from the Arkansas Colleges of Health Education, LaVona Traywick. They cooperated on a recent study of variable-rate fertilizer applications, and why farmers have been slow to adopt that technology over the many years that it's been around. There are both economic and generational components to their findings, and this research says a great deal about how the different farming generations embrace precision technology.
