Software specialist: Clint Chaffer, Farm Works

Data management is probably the last untouched frontier of precision agriculture.

Another piece of the precision ag puzzle is data management.

“Through precision ag technology, growers are collecting a lot of data,” says Clint Chaffer, a software specialist for Farm Works. “The problem is what they do with it. Growers need to get that information into a program that's feasible and functional, and translate it into information that decisions can be made from.”

Once his data is incorporated into a software package, Masteller will be able to use that information in his decision-making process.

“Will will be able to bring in all of his variety maps and his yield maps. And at the end of the year, we'll be able to do a full profit map to make sure all parts of the field are profitable, which ones are more of a payback, and which are less,” says Chaffer.

This area is still being developed and will be tapped into for 2011.
