Problem solving is often the linchpin of a dealership’s precision farming business. The last couple of years have tested the abilities of precision teams to overcome ongoing economic — and more recently — social challenges to maintain, if not grow revenue.
Despite the downturn in the ag economy, precision farming dealers have largely maintained an ambitious sales outlook, banking on their ability to increase billable service and capture ROI-based revenue from new products.
Farmwave founder and CEO Craig Ganssle says there’s been a lot of “over-promise and under-deliver” in ag technology. But that hasn’t been the case with his company’s autonomous harvest loss technology, and he has the results to prove it. The multi-camera system counts grain loss in real time and customers who use it are seeing an increase of 3-8 bushels per acre in corn and soybeans.
