TechTour: Telematics on the Farm — Managing time, farm labour & more


No matter what colour of equipment you run on your farm, there are so many ways to gather information, and yes, it can all talk to each other. But just because you’re gathering information doesn’t mean it’s useful data — there has to be a reason for tracking things or tallying up differences.

As Trevor Scherman, of Farmers Edge, explains in this TechTour episode, receiving data from equipment isn’t just about on-farm field trials compared at the end of the season, telematics actually have a place in the day to day running of equipment on the farm.

Shaun Haney sat down with Scherman at FarmTech to talk about what telematics is, the applications, how it may save on labour costs and even seeding or application mistakes. All that and more in this episode of the Dow AgroSciences’ TechTour.
