IMG_3503Welcome to the second installment of the Hick Chick Chat for the week of Thanksgiving, that glorious time of year we give #FoodThanks for another bountiful harvest.

There was a lot of conversation this year about the unfavorable growing conditions experienced in many areas and just a few months ago there were some pretty major concerns about whether the harvest would be very bountiful this year.  For the first time ever, there were no field demonstrations at the Farm Progress Show because the crops weren’t mature. Despite that adversity however, farmers have just about finished harvesting a record nearly 14 billion bushel corn crop – thanks in a very large part to the latest and greatest technology in equipment, seed and crop protection.  

IMG_3591I had a chance to catch up with some farmers at the National Association of Farm Broadcasting Trade Talk earlier this month to “talk turkey” about this year’s crop and how technology is helping them overcome even the toughest weather challenges.

From all of us here at Precision.AgWired.com, we wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you for all you do to continue to provide a bountiful harvest each and every year.
