Technology is an important part of corn production now and in the future

Higher input costs, consolidation, higher selling prices are all reasons for farmers to become better risk managers and better businessmen. Eastern Iowa farmer Bob Bowman said technology can be a key factor in improvements on the farm.

Bowman runs a true family farm in Clinton County which, started by his father, has been an innovator in technology. He also farmed with his brother and now with his son, Chris. Bowman believes in farming efficiently and effectively to continue the family tradition.
