Yield monitor data, auto-guidance and planter/sprayer section controls are helping growers improve their bottom line, according to Indiana farmer Doug Davenport–as reported in Indiana Prairie Farmer.
Speaking on a precision farming panel discussion, Davenport highlighted his list of precision efficiencies:
- Yield monitor data proves need for tiling, and how it will pay
- Auto-guidance allows for needed long days of planting, yet keeps you refreshed
- Automatic planter row shut-off and sprayer boom control to prevent overlap are no-brainer technology investments to save money.
