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.
