Precision agriculture got some high level exposure yesterday on CNN. The Twittering Farmer, Steve Tucker, Nebraska, was the subject of a story about farmers and technology, including communications technology like smart phones and services like Twitter. They they had him on live for a segment via Skype video from his farm! Steve’s got a lot more followers on Twitter than there are in his home town. You can also follow Steve on his blog.

Steve says that while he’s on his tractor he’s got GPS and Auto Steer to drive for him which allows him to text on his phone. Many of those texts become Twitter posts. BTW, one of the founders of Twitter comes from Nebraska.

I think you’ll enjoy the interview with Steve. He’s a great spokesperson for agriculture.
