You have likely heard “Precision Farming Technology” an infinite amount in the past…

What does this really mean?

Let’s break it down to make sense of it:




  • the quality, condition, or fact of being exact and accurate.
  • refinement in a measurement, calculation, or specification, especially as represented by the number of digits given.




  • the activity or business of growing crops and raising livestock.
  • use (land) for growing crops and rearing animals, especially commercially.
  • breed or grow commercially (a type of livestock or crop, especially one not normally domesticated or cultivated).



Noun: technology

  • machinery and equipment developed from the application of scientific knowledge.
  • the branch of knowledge dealing with engineering or applied sciences.

Pre·ci·sion Farm·ing & Tech·nol·o·gy

  • is a combination of methods in farming that uses technological instruments and innovations to grow crops more efficiently.
  • This efficiency can be achieved by applying several techniques including GPS guidance, drones, sensors, soil sampling, precision machinery, and many more.

Ultimately, precision farming techniques help farmers make more informed decisions about their crops based on the unique nature of their fields so that they can do the right thing, in the right place, at the right time.

With Precision Farming you get an approach to farm management that uses information technology to ensure that crops and soil receive exactly what they need for optimum health and productivity.

The goal of Precision Farming is to ensure profitability, sustainability, and protection of the environment.

Which leads to profitability and continued longevity of your farming operations.

In today’s world, Technology plays a very central role in decision making at all levels. From Machinery purchases involving tractors, tillage, planting, spraying, and harvesting. Deciding what fertilizer is needed, where it is needed, and when it is needed.

This portion of your agricultural business is growing and evolving in multiple directions, these are all instrumental in synchronizing multiple layers of information together to optimize farm management and planning.

The business of Precision Farming is far from mature, it will only grow exponentially, and the complexity of it will only evolve to be more PRECISE.

Precision Farming Systems are here to stay.

With the constantly evolving information that is being gathered from farms. It is becoming an exact science to growing the most Bountiful and Profitable crops. Farming is becoming an industry of accuracy and efficiency. From Meters, to Decimeters, to Centimeters, to Millimeter accuracy.

When you combine the information gathered from different precision systems. You empower yourself with the ability to multiply the usefulness of a Precision Farming system.

If you only have one puzzle piece, you can only imagine what the complete picture looks like. The more puzzle pieces you add the clearer the picture starts to become!

The same applies to Precision Farming.

You can use a guidance system to help you make all the rows straight. This is wonderful, but not when your Corn only grows to be 3 feet tall. If you collect the yield information data from your previous harvest and then apply the results using one of the many precision technologies available. You will be one step closer to the Precise Mix needed to maximize the Yield and Profitability of your land.

There are multiple ways that these systems can assist you:

  • Variable Rate Application for Seed
  • Variable Rate Application for Fertilizer
  • Measure soil moisture
  • Adjust planting depth to maximize moisture levels
  • Hydraulic Up/Down Pressure to provide uniform depth in all conditions
  • Mapping Yields
  • Collecting information
  • Plus, many, many more

All this data can be analyzed and give you the information needed to be successful with your crops.

The information can be collected and provided to you. What you do with the information is up to you!
