Farmer Shares Why He Takes Time to Get Data Right

Read how FBN member Brian Scott is using data on his farm, and how he takes a little time to get his data squared away before planting.  

"The moral of this story is: If you want to make good decisions you need good data to access. It doesn’t take much time at all to ensure you’ve got this right. There is a lot more to precision farming than just making a neat map to look at. You have to be able to use it."
