We know the drill. Your farm is running smoothly and your output is looking good. But, you still want to take it to the next level. After all, isn’t there always room for improvement? How can you grow if you never stop striving to improve?
We’ve heard this from plenty of our agriculture customers, and our solution is always the same: precision farming. Maybe you’ve heard of it and never given it a second thought, or maybe you’ve implemented some precision ag tactics into your operation over the years.
However familiar you may be with precision farming, it’s time to take it just a step further. Don’t worry though. If you’re set up near Sheboygan, WI, our team won’t let you go through this on your own.
Take a moment to think about your growing cycle. Prepping the land, planting the seeds, growing the crops, and eventually harvesting when the time is right. Each step involves plenty of jobs that need to be performed accurately to keep the cycle running efficiently.
What happens if a job somewhere along this cycle is overlooked, or maybe you don’t pay close enough attention to the working conditions? A little bit of inaccuracy can lead to a big upset when it comes to harvest season.
We know you’re good at what you do, and we know you’re fully capable of each of these jobs. But fatigue can always play a part in mistakes, and insufficient data tracked can lead to inaccurate decision making.
That’s where precision farming becomes beneficial.
Using an RTK network powered by Digifarm, our system helps to make more informed decisions and helps to increase accuracy, productivity, and efficiency in your operation.
