Today’s growers must remember everything their fathers did, plus face an entirely new set of decisions and challenges regarding soil quality and moisture, escalating input costs, an uncertain skilled labor supply and a volatile global commodities market.
Modern technology tools can provide assistance, but they create new challenges as farmers work through the pains of a huge learning curve. The Farmlink suite of knowledge products, will help growers maximize harvest efficiency and increase grower confidence that performance is on-track — on-track to optimize the harvest.
Farmlink's SpectraYield family of information products gives growers a better understanding of how their results compare to the rest of the MachineryLink community of growers. While completely anonymous, the benchmarking service allows growers to compare their results to those growers in their county, state, region and across North America. Further, the near real-time nature of the information means that growers don’t have to wait for the USDA reports to see how they compare, or how they might need to alter their marketing strategy.
