Variable Rate Seeding: Easier Than You Think

Your planter may be smarter than you think!  If you were capable of dropping seeds in the field exactly where you would like them, you could expect the plants to respond in a positive way and ultimately maximize yield in that particular spot in the field.  Variable rate seeding is a major step to reaching [...]

Put Your Yield Data To Work

These days, combines are capable of much more than harvesting grain. They can read fields like a book.  Some of the most important information a combine can collect is yield data. Once analyzed yield data shows everything from the most productive portions of a field to the least and every zone in between. You have [...]

Does Precision Ag Pay?

“Yes is does!” exclaims Farrell Allison, Crop Quest Agronomist in the Dodge City, KS Division.  “At times, Precision Agriculture information and technology can be overwhelming but once all the pieces are together, it does pay,” he states. Allison consults on approximately 40 fields that are using some type of Precision Agriculture (PA) system. The most [...]
