Terry Griffin

Farm Management, Cropping Systems, Precision Agriculture

Associate 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.

New Farm Management Decision Tool

Terry Griffin talks about a new farm management decision tool from K-State that's built around historic farmland values in Kansas and across the continental U.S. He says this can be useful in an assortment of ways, including determining the stepped-up basis value of farmland for land transaction purposes.

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.
