Dr. Louis Longchamps
Louis Longchamps earned his PhD at Laval University working on site-specific weed management exploring the spatial distribution of weeds at the field scale. He followed with postdoctoral studies at Colorado State University working on precision nutrient, seeds, and water management. As a research scientist at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Dr Longchamps continued his work on precision agriculture and conducted workshops on observational research. In his position of assistant professor of digital agronomy at Cornell University, he wants to explore the potential of observational research and on-farm experimentation to accelerate scientific development in agriculture, maintaining productivity while reducing the negative impacts of agriculture on the environment. Dr. Longchamps is the current chair of the On-Farm Experimentation Community of the International Society of Precision Agriculture.
