As farms and farmers continue to work to maximize profitability, maximize production, and minimize input costs; more are turning to advanced technologies to help gain a competitive edge. Many technologies being deployed on the farm today are part of the Internet of Things which places large amounts of farm-generated data up into the cloud for analysis and storage. The focus of this session was to introduce Symposium attendees to some of the latest farm management technologies that are being used on the ground today. In addition, also demonstrating the great lengths that industry is taking to protect the valuable farm-generated data that farmers are relying on to make sound business decisions that allow them to be more competitive in the marketplace.
