Episode 23: Ag Technology and Precision Agriculture
In this episode of the Growing On Podcast, we talk about precision agriculture and new technology/machinery in the agriculture industry that helps producers be more productive and efficient.
During the 2021 Sunbelt Ag Expo John Deere unveiled it's new CP770 Cotton Harvester - a brand new, state of the art machine that will help cotton producers be more productive and efficient on their farms.
With input costs increasing and profit margins becoming tighter, it’s more important than ever for producers to be as productive and efficient as they possibly can. Which is why research being done by Simer Virk, UGA Extension Precision Ag Specialist is so important. I recently spent some time with him at UGA's Iron Horse Farm where he's been conducting some research with some precision ag technology.
