Sobre los expositores visitantes:

Claudio Stokle (

Dr. Claudio Stöckle’s research is in the Land, Air, Water Resources and Environmental Engineering (LAWREE) research emphasis area. His focus is on the development and application of analytical tools to study, understand and manage the interaction between soil, weather, and crops. He is particularly interested in modeling the environmental impact of agricultural production at the field and water shed levels and in further enhancement and support of the Agricultural Crop Systems Modeling Software (CropSyst) he as developed.

Lav Khot (

Dr. Khot works in the Agricultural Automation Engineering  research emphasis area of the Department of Biological Systems Engineering. His research and extension program focuses on “Sensing and automation technologies for site specific and precision management of production agriculture”. Special emphasis is towards integration of

  • Remote Sensing (Unmanned and Manned Aerial Systems)
  • Ground-based (Proximal) Crop Sensing
  • Decision Support Systems and Information Delivery Technologies
  • Precise Applications of various Production Inputs
  • Agricultural Machinery and Processes
  • Data-based Modeling

Troy Peters (
