What is Precision Ag?
You might have heard some about Precision Ag but maybe you don’t fully understand what exactly it is. To put it simply, Precision Ag is using various digital tools and systems to optimize and manage many inputs and outputs in your field. Typically, the used technology collects data and information on things such as soil, then they make decisions on how to increase production and reach goals. After the decision is made, they then take the required measures to reach these goals. Eis Implement and John Deere have plenty of Precision Ag tools available such as guidance systems, Swatch and Rake controls for sprayers and planters, John Deere Stellar Support, and more.
How can farmers benefit from precision farming?
When using Precision Ag tools there is a major reduction in wasted products such as fertilizers and herbicides because the corrective technologies use the proper amount. This also results in fewer emissions and a reduced carbon footprint, making it better for the environment.
Reduced costs, increased profit
Another benefit to less product waste is less money wasted. Using the right amount of inputs is better for your crops and your wallet. These processes also boost performance so you are seeing better results quicker, reducing crop loss, dropping hourly costs, and increasing profit.
