Your Pre-Harvest Checklist

Melissa SandfortAg Leader, Insights Weekly

Insights WeeklySeems like just yesterday we discussed the benefits of pre-season planting preparation, and now we find ourselves staring a pre-harvest checklist straight in the eye. But keep in mind that servicing your precision ag equipment prior to harvest is equally as important as in the spring.

Ag Leader Technology is helping to give growers a few tips on where to start:
• Create a backup of your spring information
• Verify that you are running the latest version of SMS
• Read in any remaining files from earlier this year
• Export information out of SMS Software to your precision ag display

Luke James, Ag Leader Software Sales Specialist, says taking the appropriate steps to check your equipment before harvest will save you time and money in the long-run. [wpaudio url=”″ text=”Listen to James explain.”]
