As mentioned in a previous post, as we get deeper into the “precision revolution,” compatibility is growing, and practitioners are choosing their brands of equipment more carefully. That seems to be supported by the results of a recent reader poll, showing that nearly 60% run their operations with 3 brands or less of equipment.
Q: Counting self-propelled equipment, electronic controllers, GPS receivers, in-cab computers, yield monitors, and implements, how many different brands of these types of equipment do you use in your operation?
1-3 brands: 57%
4-6 brands: 33%
7-9 brands: 2%
10 or more brands: 8%
Total Responses: 46
