The rapidly evolving field of ag tech is being driven by a confluence of factors including automation and sensor densification of ag machinery, connection of this equipment to the internet, remote sensing via unmanned aerial systems and cloud computing.
2019 created both opportunities and obstacles for adoption of new ag technology, with strip-tillers facing shorter planting and harvesting timelines.
This an ongoing trend, says Dr. Scott Shearer, ag engineering professor at Ohio State, which will make tools like artificial intelligence (AI), machine automation and robotics important pieces to maintain field efficiencies in the future.
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast, Scott and I reflect on the 2019 growing season and dissect a few of the practical and progressive applications of machine learning technologies.
