Despite the wide range of hardware and software solutions available to farmers across the agtech landscape, it's important to remember that technology is no substitute for good management practices.
There are so many moving parts of your business that affect your readiness. Why is it important to consider all of them? Because the only thing worse than choosing the wrong software for your farm is choosing software that you don't have the resources to implement.
There is a need for high-tech tools that can bring improvement to the foresee ability of various farming operations. The goal is to achieve profitable, predictable and sustainable yield agriculture across all farms.
The way we grow is changing and so are the tools we need to be successful. Here are a few recommendations from some of the farms that I've seen are doing it right.
It's amazing how much technology has become an everyday part of our family farm, which has grown to 2,100 acres. Instead of a notebook, we use digital tools like FieldView™ so we have all of our data right at our fingertips.
Slow and steady is winning the race as Farmwave's platform has taken almost 6 years to get to this release... but the AI output results and complex core in the background combined with an easy and almost social style UI/UX form of data collection is on point.
Open AgTech Announces New API Standard Enabling Growers to Use Technology to Its Fullest Within Greenhouses and Vertical Farms
Technologists come together to form new standard for connecting hardware and software for the indoor agriculture industry.
Seung Lee for The Mercury News: An Oakland-based startup is sending its aerial imaging technology to the Midwestern plains to help farmers detect pests and diseases in their corn and soybean fields before an outbreak.
Farmers actively use some 26 apps on a regular basis. The apps here are just a few. New technologies such as the Internet of Things and Cloud Computing are expected to leverage this development and introduce more robots and artificial intelligence in farming.
Jorn Madslien for BBC: The app, called Plantix, was developed thousands of miles away in Berlin, Germany, by a group of graduate students and scientists who came together to help farmers combat disease, pest damage and nutrient deficiency in their crops.
The biggest thing to get right is sales. And sales are driven by how the space in the farm is utilized. Of course, yield is important, but growers need to understand how crops are performing and how much space they occupy as well, because the two are interconnected.
Jason Tatge for VentureBeat: Because its still early days in the realm of digital ag, theres a big risk that sellers are going to try to get farmers locked into their data systems and policies.
The rapidly growing remote sensing industry provides consumers multiple options to choose from. The challenge is selecting a crop scouting solution thats complete - that considers the sensor, software, and data analytics tools that provide the best value for your needs.

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
