Get In The Zone

Even across a 40-acre-field, there may be a number of soil types, each with a different texture and water-holding capacity. Experts explain how the latest in technology and agronomic practices can help producers maximize yield potential with fewer inputs.

Beyond Precision: Digital Agriculture

What are the “four pillars of digital agriculture”? An agronomist defines them and explains how an understanding can help producers today and tomorrow.

Smart Seed Selection

Prior to the advent of precision-agriculture management zones and multi-hybrid/variety planting technology, producers were essentially limited to planting only one hybrid or variety per field. Now, solutions exist to place the right seed in the right place at the right rate to boost productivity and profitability. Read on and learn more about these precision ag and planting technologies.

High-Tech Zone Help

As more growers set up management zones in their fields, new technologies are coming online to help at every step of the process. AGCO experts discuss their favorites among the latest and upcoming innovations, such as the new SmartFirmer that “sees” conditions in each furrow on the go for high-definition mapping of soil moisture, organic matter and residue. It also produces data that can tell the planter how much of which seed to plant in real time. Now that’s precision!

Plant With Precision

Got a planter that doesn’t have the latest in high-speed, down-force and monitoring technologies? Never fear. Ground-breaking components from Precision Planting can be added to many older planters from a variety of brands. Learn more in this story.
