About Precision.Agwired

Welcome to Precision.Agwired, a site specifically designed to bring you the latest information and resources on agricultural innovations to make farming more productive and profitable. That includes precision technology, seed, fertilizer, and more.

In fields across the country, more growers are making precision farming a way of life, no matter how large or small their operation, no matter what the crop. With increased input costs and the pressure to do more with less, growers are continually looking for ways to improve farming efficiencies, production and profitability. precision.agwired.com was created with this in mind.

The site is updated numerous times each week to provide timely precision farming information, links to other resources and coverage from industry trade shows such as the National Farm Machinery Show, Commodity Classic, and Farm Progress Show. In addition, you’ll find interviews with technology experts and leading growers who have incorporated precision technology into their operations.

    Please send date of publication of the following article.

    The Moberly Monitor reports that precision technology is a favorite for an award-winning Moberly Area Community College graduate. Kellar Nelson farm-raised Missourian is heading off to study in Prague, Czech Republic. But, the Moberly Monitor caught up with her before she left, and she raved about precision farming.

    Precision agriculture is Nelson’s new-found love. Precision agriculture uses scientific data to determine the best methods of planting, pesticide and fertilizer use and harvesting for a specific field.

    The goal is the same one farmers have had for centuries, higher yields and lower input costs. Precision agriculture uses technology like GPS to accurately seed and fertilize fields. It tests plots of ground to determine the content of soil. This tells farmers what to plant, what insects to fight and what fertilizers to use.

    Farming is a lot more than sticking seeds in the ground and praying for rain and sunshine these days. ‘There’s a lot of new technology in farming making farmers more money with better crop yields,’ explained Nelson.

    Although she hasn’t convinced her dad to purchase any of this new equipment yet, he is making a few suggestions on possible research projects she can do.
