The Association of Equipment Manufacturers says that we’re now in the era of precision agriculture, where advanced technologies will help farmers produce more crops with fewer inputs. Curt Blades, senior vice president for ag services, says one of the key tasks of their report surveying the implementation of precision agriculture is defining what exactly it is.
Blades explains that adopting precision ag technologies has helped reduce inputs and costs.
AEM senior vice president of ag services Curt Blades notes that adoption of precision ag technology has varied by region, with most farmers in the corn belt having already done so, while specialty crop areas in other pockets of the country are trailing. Further details about the study are available on the Association of Equipment Manufacturers website.
