Steve Berning has spent quite a bit of time researching precision farming equipment. On his 1,700 acre operation in Warrensville, Ill., using a mix of technology and brands helps maintain accuracy for strip-till and variable-rate fertilizer application.
Trent Sanderson came back to the family farm after graduating college in 2011, and one of the first things he did was to dive into the data collected over the years from the operation’s precision equipment.
Barge design and positioning affect efficient movement on the Mississippi River. But when aging infrastructure brings barges to a standstill for as long as 12 hours, all the design in the world can't save what amounts to $100 million in delay-related costs. If the U.S. is going to move twice as much grain to market 20 or 30 years from now, we'll need to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to update the river's ancient system of locks.
This week, we’re heading to the Innovation Hub at the 2023 Nebraska Ag Expo, where over 50 ag tech companies gathered to showcase some of the best cutting-edge technology in the industry.
