The UNL TAPS Summer Event was held on June 24, 2021 at West Central Research Extension and Education Center.  The day brought agricultural producers and company representatives together to learn more about sensors, crop diagnostic analysis and marketing insights.  This first time event featured the "Agronomic Olympics" that tested producers on ther knowledge and abiltiy to identify various weeds, as well as other subjects.  The workshop proved to be informative as well as a fun event.  Daran Rudnick said the event was meant to highlight technology that TAPS participants and partners could use in managing crops as part of the competition as well as their own private operation.
