At this week’s American Soybean Association/John Deere Ag Management Solutions, “Reach For The Stars” seminar in Arkansas Ted Glaub, Glaub Farm Management and ASA board member, was a presenter.
He says that a lot of his operators are using new sprayer technology to save significantly on input costs, especially on odd shaped fields. Ted says that using precision equipment does save on operator “wear and tear.” By not having to focus as much on steering the operator can focus on other important elements of planting or harvesting. He says he sees more and more farmers getting into precision ag each year. For growers considering making an investment he recommends starting out by asking the local dealer a lot of questions, especially for their specific operation.
