Every farm has a business plan. It may be a well-referenced physical document or it may only exist in your head. In the same way, Stuart Lawrence, with AgLeader Technology, encourages each farmer to sit down (or dream up) their own precision farming plan. Not every farm is going to farm by the inch or layer data on data to create intricate field maps, but, as Lawrence explains in the video below, any farmer interested in the technology will get more out of it if they do a little planning first.
RealAgriculture.com asked Lawrence what a precision farming plan might look like, what a good time-frame is for developing one and what to include. As Lawrence says, the homework done now may save you from purchasing equipment that no longer serves a purpose in a few years or limits what you can accomplish.
