The Transfer of Precision Agriculture
by Garrett Buckley, HTS Ag

We all know what yield monitors are. We all know what auto-steer, clutches, and variable rate all relatively consist of. With all of these “high priced” options, how are you going to make the best of it. How do you make them actually work, become more efficient, or show huge yield gains, and most importantly show more green in your pockets.

The answer is your data. It is the driving force for everything agriculture. Although it may not seem as important as some other things, it certainly is. The information you gather after all of a year’s hard work is measured in data. Improvements can always be made. Using the data you receive to make the best decision for your farming operation for the next year is probably the biggest decision of the year for you. By reading this data along and combining it with other factors such as: soil tests, your agronomist or seed dealer, or other options can make the make it or break it difference for the next year.

Always keep in mind that data is the past, present, and future of your farming operation, if you want the most improvement. Keeping accurate records and showing what works and doesn’t work will help sculpt decisions for the future to keep you gaining and improving the outcome of your farming operation.

Ag Leader Announces OnTrac3 Assisted Steering System
by Ag Leader

AMES, IOWA, August 1, 2014 – Ag Leader Technology today introduced its latest assisted steering system: OnTrac3. The newly designed OnTrac3 represents the next generation of the company’s assisted steering system and features a number of improvements to the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and the Mechanical Drive Unit (MDU).
