A person might be able to argue whether or not precision agriculture technology increases yields, but he could not argue whether or not he has more information about his farm. Precision agriculture technology generates a tremendous amount of data and producers need to learn how to manage this data to their benefit.
Robert Greenlee and his business partner, Mark White, are adapting precision agriculture practices to their northeast Oklahoma farm and are learning the value of all this information. Greenlee purchased his first yield monitor in 1991 after a trip to the Louisville Farm Show.
"We always knew we had variability in our fields, but this was a real eye opener," Greenlee said.
