Agri NewsStudents at Iowa State University are getting cutting edge farming equipment from Ag Leader Technology. Agri News, a news company serving Minnesota and Northern Iowa, reports that Ag Leader Technology had donated products from its newest line of precision ag equipment to the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering at ISU.

The donation starts a new laboratory at ISU, complete with hardware and software.

Students taking classes on precision farming will now be able to use the lab to gain knowledge and understanding of the equipment in a real-world situation. By using the hardware and software together, students will be able to simulate a working farm and collection of valuable information using geopatial technology.
