Abstracts Deadline for 16th ICPA Extended Until December 1st
ICPA Abstract Extension
 
Thank you to everyone who submitted abstracts to the 16th ICPA by the 31 October deadline. We had a terrific surge of submissions the final week. 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 Friday, 1 December 2023
 
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.
