Countless variables go into planning any crop—no one knows that better than farmers. This time of year, don’t forget to consider how agricultural technology can play a part in building your bottom line.

Farm Journal Field Agronomist Ken Ferrie has studied how VRT for seeding and fertilizer as well as swath control can cut costs and boost yields on operations all along the size spectrum.
 
In this study, Ferrie examines the ROI of variable-rate and swath-control technology on two different operations. What he found might surprise you. It may also save you money in 2017.
