John Deere TractorBrent Maddon was the John Deere product development representative on hand at the American Soybean Association/John Deere Ag Management Solutions seminar in Arkansas last week. The event is one of three “Reach for the Stars” presentations being sponsored by John Deere.

Maddon gave a presentation about how farmer’s can use precision technology and where the technology is headed for the future. He says farmers should look to move beyond the Autotrac guidance systems because GPS technology is allowing John Deere to develop more applications for different farming needs. Maddon urges farmers to get a hands-on feel for precision ag technology saying consumers need to use it to fully recognize and appreciate what it can do.
