Chad Godsey


Number: (970)431-0801

Chad Godsey was born and raised on a farm and ranch near Wray in northeastern Colorado. After graduating from Colorado State University with his B.S. in Ag Business and Soil and Crop Science, he went to Kansas State University to get his M.S. and PhD in Agronomy/Soil Fertility. During his M.S., which focused on site-specific management of Fe chlorosis in irrigated corn in SW Kansas, he developed a passion for precision agriculture. He switched focus for his PhD studies, which were centered on soil test recommendations and management of no-till acidic soils. He also worked full-time as the KSU Soil Testing Lab Manager during his PhD studies.

After graduation in 2005 he went to work at Oklahoma State University as a Cropping System Specialist in the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences. He served as the State Specialist for most of the oilseeds produced in the state. Most of his research and extension efforts were focused on increasing the efficiency of crop production through use of technology, no-tillage, and crop rotation. Throughout his graduate studies and time at OSU, he stayed actively involved with precision ag research and how to best use the technology in real-world situations.

As a result of his time at OSU, he began to notice a disconnect between the precision ag industry and past research that had been conducted at Universities. In an effort to bridge this disconnect Chad created Godsey Precision Ag in an effort to help producers better utilize precision ag technologies to increase their profitability. Chad is a firm believer in utilizing precision ag technology to increase the efficiency of crop inputs to make the most yield and profitability out of your farm.
