Sept. 27 webinar to focus on improving wheat grazing using Canopeo mobile app
Great Plains Grazing will host a free webinar Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 1:30 p.m. CDT to introduce the new Canopeo application for mobile devices. The app is designed to better manage cattle grazing in dual purpose wheat systems common in the southern Great Plains. For a description of this app and how it works, see Agronomy eUpdate, Aug. 12, 2016.
Great Plains Grazing is a coordinated effort by a regional network of researchers and extension specialists to adapt beef cattle grazing strategies to changing conditions. Kansas State University is a collaborator in Great Plains Grazing.
Webinar presenter Andres Patrignani, K-State Assistant Professor of Agronomy in soil water processes, will describe the history, user guidelines, applications, and limitations of Canopeo. He is one of the creators of the Canopeo app.
Romulo Lollato, K-State Wheat and Forages Specialist, will describe management principles of dual purpose wheat pastures and how to optimize pasture grazing using the Canopeo application.
