Session 1: How Precision Pays Back. Farmers and retailers who have successfully adopted precision farming techniques share their stories on how they incorporated the technology into their business.
Session 2: Auto-Swath Control. This is an emerging area of precision agriculture that allows farmers to shut off individual spray nozzles and planter row units.
Session 3: Adapting Precision Equipment to Your Equipment. It doesn’t take brand-new equipment to adapt precision technology to your fleet. Learn from farmers who have integrated precision technology into their existing equipment, whether it is 20 years old or brand-new.
Session 4: Connectivity from the Field to the Farm Office. Telematics is a new and innovative system that allows farmers to directly upload data from the tractor to the farm office in real time. Learn what systems are available, how they work and how you can save time and profit from data collected.
