Make Informed Decisions with Data Management
by Garrett Buckley, HTS Ag

Data management can be a difficult task for one to fully understand and use. Most farmers today have some form of data management. It can be anything from yield monitors to variable rate prescriptions, or something else such as soil sampling. No matter what technology or management solution you have it can be used efficiently and as a benefit to your farming operation. The key is to understand the technology you have and how to get the best bang for your buck.

When taking all of your precision technologies and throwing them together at the end of the year, what are your plans? How do they get utilized for the best potential of your operation?

Tech Tip: Getting Ready for Harvest
by Jeff Swearingen, HTS Ag

It is not too early to start thinking about and getting the combine/yield monitor ready for harvest. If we get these pre-season checks done ahead of time, we can beat the rush and do a more thorough job of prepping and checking things out.
