“Don’t be afraid to tinker.” Scott Gabbard’s philosophy on precision farming seems to fall right in line with fellow precision pro Roger Hadley. Scott is an extension educator from Shelby County, Indiana. He too offered some precision ag pointers during a presentation at the Indianapolis Precision Agriculture Conference earlier this month. Scott says the benefits of precision technology amount to more than just farmers increasing their yield. He says precision farming offers a lot of information and it’s up to the farmer to discover new ways to apply that information to something useful.
Scott adds that the time is ripe for precision agriculture: the price of the technology is falling, while input costs are rising.
