Ag engineer digs in on key ag-tech topics

The Around Farm Progress podcast looks at new technology with John Fulton, Ohio State University extension ag engineer

Quality time talking technology with an ag engineer can also cover a lot of topics. That's what we found out when we connected with John Fulton, extension ag engineer, Ohio State University. Fulton is involved with a lot of different engineering projects and research working with grad students at the school, and he works closely with farmers too. He shares his thoughts on capturing farm data, the value of 5G and even some insights on "right to repair."

Farm Progress caught up with Fulton at a farm near Dayton, Ohio, beside a combine. Fulton will be featured in the next installment of Farm Progress 365, where he will discuss some hot topics concerning prepping for harvest, and how the pandemic could change your plans.
