The value of managing data

Jeff Caldwell 10/14/2010 @ 7:56am Multimedia Editor for Agriculture.com and Successful Farming magazine.

Bode, Iowa, farmer Chris Weydert talks about the data new precision technology allows him to glean from his fields, and how important the management of that data has become to his overall farm management. He's been collecting precise field data for years, and today, he's able to layer that information in ways that help him make better-informed decisions on key inputs like variety selection, tillage, fertilizer and herbicides.
