Running a successful farming operation is multi-faceted. Farmers must carefully consider many different things such as the products they use, but how much thought is given to the technology needed to be successful? The 2016 Iowa Farm and Rural Life Poll published by Iowa State University notes that farmers prefer in-person communications such as one-on-one consultations, workshops and field days for obtaining most of their information for running their farming operations.
But is that enough?
Information is more prevalent than ever thanks in part to the internet, the myriad of communication options provided by social media and mobile devices. Farmers now have as much, or more, computing power in their pocket as they do on their desk in their office. Embracing these options will help today’s farmer to excel by staying in tune with the latest practices by staying connected to suppliers and fellow farmers.
