15th International Conference on Precision Agriculture
The 15th International Conference on Precision Agriculture will be held 28 June - 1 July 2020 at Minneapolis Marriott City Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 
 
More information about the conference hotel, abstract submission, and registration is available at ispag.org/icpa.
Abstracts Deadline for 15th ICPA Extended Until December 30
Thanks to everyone who submitted abstracts to the 15th ICPA by the November 30 deadline. We had a terrific surge of submissions the final week for a total of over 200 abstracts submitted. We also had a number of requests to submit an abstract after the deadline. We have allowed for these later submissions and we want to be fair to everyone, so we are extending the deadline to 30 December 2019
 
Due to the need to review all abstracts in a timely manner we will need to maintain this as the final deadline for submissions. 
 
Abstracts can be submitted online at https://www.ispag.org/abstracts.
 
Information about the full paper submissions including a template can be found at Author Instructions.
 
If you have any questions about submitting or the conference, please contact abstracts@ispag.org or phone +1217-762-7955. 
PA in Bulgaria
Precision Agriculture in Bulgaria - Rositsa Beluhova-Uzunova and Dobri Dunchev, Agricultural University-Plovdiv, Bulgaria
 
In Bulgaria precision agriculture (PA) technologies are widely used on the large grain and oilseed farms in the northern part of the country. On those farms most tractors and combines are equipped with Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) displays and steering systems, and also with systems for implement guidance on slopes and systems for section control for sprayers. They also use combines which create digital yield maps during the harvest. According to the agricultural census in 2016, there are about 2300 large farms specialized in extensive production in Bulgaria. Those farm represent 68% of the country’s agricultural area. PA technology is rare on medium and small farms in Bulgaria. More information on PA is available on the ISPA website.
