Precision tech aids farming operations

What’s New From the Shows: These products showcase new technology.

Companies are finding new ways to incorporate precision technology into agriculture. Sometimes, it results in a whole new product. Other times, it becomes a better way of doing things in an existing product. Here are some new products that use technology that wasn’t available just a short time ago.

One of the first things you should notice is that there are a wide range of products with differing degrees of sophistication in this category. They also offer farmers solutions in a variety of different applications, from grain drying to steering their tractor. Zero in on the solutions that interest you the most, and use the contact information provided to follow up and learn more about those products.

If you don’t have autosteering in your vehicles yet, Raven’s Omni-Drive product may catch your eye. It’s a great way to move into precision technology and up your game in daily field operations. If you already have autosteer, the enhanced capabilities for RTK guidance from DigiFarm’s Elevate receiver may be something you want to consider.

New to the U.S. are SWAT maps, and what this system can do to help you create more precise management zones within your fields. It could be the ticket if you’re intending to shift to variable-rate and prescription application technology. The concept is already proven in Canada.

And Thunderstruck Ag’s air missile isn’t ready to blast a hole in your grain bin, but there is no denying it looks like a missile. This innovative device is designed specifically to help dry grain inside a hopper-bottom bin in a whole new way.
