Have Tech on Tap for 2021

Jan 18, 2021

You probably have been thinking about your seed inputs, or maybe you have purchased them. But how’s your ag technology planning going for next season? Determine how to best leverage ag tech tools to help reach your goals in the upcoming year. Here are a few things to keep in mind.

1. Identify your biggest in-field challenges.
Was there a problem last season that you're carrying into the next one? Or maybe you caught a weed, insect, or disease issue a little too late. We can steer you toward tech tools that can detect and address these challenges faster. Using timely NutriSolutions® tissue samples, in-season imagery through the R7® Tool and Climate Fieldview™ to seamlessly collect, store, and visualize critical field data. Monitor and measure the impact of your agronomic decisions on your fields to optimize yield and maximize profit. 

2. Looked at ag tech tools in the past? Look again.
If there’s a tool you considered three years ago, it’s probably changed. We’re seeing ag tech companies introduce their second and third generations of products, some of which have pivoted from their initial intentions.

For example, what began as a nitrogen recommendation tool may have morphed into a yield analysis tool. That’s a completely different value proposition from the first go-around, but one that could still provide significant value to your operation. 
 
3. Use limited resources wisely.
I don’t need to tell you that the ag economy continues to be challenging. Keep things simple, and use tech tools that enable you to be more efficient and optimize your inputs per bushel. Ag tech tools can help you use your budget at optimal times. For example, there’s a good chance that in some places in the United States, there is going to be weather like we haven’t seen in decades — or ever. Using decision ag tools that enable action precisely when needed can help you avoid applying 250 bushels’ worth of resources on what will ultimately be a 175-bushel crop.
