2024 Abstract - USING LADDER (LARGE AGRICULTURAL DATABASE THAT DRIVES EXTENSION AND RESEARCH) AND LIVE (LARGE-PLOT IMPLEMENTATION VALIDATION EXPERIMENT) TO INCREASE CROP PRODUCTIVITY AND PROFITABILITY AT THE FIELD-SCALE: Big data capture and analytics may be foundational to addressing a multitude of research and Extension areas in the Mid-South. Analysis of large-scale, agricultural data can be used to determine the effects of agronomic practices, management philosophies, and environment on crop productivity and profitability. The LADDER program collects, processes, and securely stores geospatially specific agronomic and environmental data for the purpose of addressing research and Extension concerns. The LIVE program employs information from LADDER to formulate field-scale research experiments. These programs work in conjunction for the purpose of making precision agricultural data actionable and beneficial for growers.
