    Ep 108 John Deere & the CES

    Ep 108 John Deere & the CES

    CES is the world’s largest technology show, held each year in Las Vegas. In its 50+ years, this show has become the spot for companies to show case the latest advancements – and enhancements – on the tech scene. Everything from computers, to cars, to drones, now into health and wellness, security, and data – CES showcases more than 4,500 exhibitors with more than 170,000 attendees from 160 countries.

    CES isn’t the first type of event one might think of when it comes to green tractors. But in 2019, John Deere attended its first show, with plans to return again in 2020.

    Laurel Caes, public relations at John Deere, joins host Tony Kramer to discuss why John Deere believes that CES is valuable in presenting the widely-known agriculture company as a technology company – and what’s in store for John Deere at CES 2020?

    Ep. 107 Lettuce Thinning Technology

    Ep. 107 Lettuce Thinning Technology

    Let’s start at the beginning - why thin lettuce?

    Traditionally, a grower overpopulates the field with seed to ensure adequate yield.

    Seed will be planted at about two to three-inch spacing and then wait for the plant to germinate. Once the plant germinates, a grower has an idea of yield and can make a game plan. Typically, a hand crew of about 25-60 laborers come and thin the crop by hand to get the desired spacing – usually 10,11, or 12 inches.

    But with today’s challenges and labor shortages, growers are looking for technology solutions that will increase efficiency and provide less expensive ways to do that.

    In comes Vision Robotics, who developed a machine that allows a grower to thin lettuce fields with just 1 or 2 people.

    Product Specialist Supervisor Bryan Feemster, who lives and works in Salinas, CA - otherwise known as the “Salad Bowl of the World” - joins this week’s episode to discuss the latest in produce technology.

    SWIIM® - Sustainable Water and Innovative Irrigation Management®

    SWIIM® - Sustainable Water and Innovative Irrigation Management®

    SWIIM® stands for Sustainable Water and Innovative Irrigation Management®.

    It provides a new standard in water measurement than allows growers to receive an accurate accounting of the water both delivered and consumed on their fields.

    This patented process was developed with the help of the USDA and is being used successfully by both growers and water providers.

    SWIIM accounts for your water with the same precision as your CPA accounts for finances. With the regulations and the increase costs associated with water usage this information is invaluable.

    Harry Ferdon, Business Development Manager for SWIIM, joins host Tony Kramer to discuss the role water data can have in a grower’s operation.

    Ep. 104 LaForge Systems

    On our latest episode of the Agriculture Technology Podcast, we sit down with Kyle Frazier, Sales and Marketing Manager with LaForge Systems.

    As a leader in tractor-implement management, LaForge helps to optimize the use of agricultural tractors.

    Kyle and host Tony Kramer take a deep dive into LaForge’s precision farming solution: DynaTrac.

    There are many reasons an implement may not be able to follow a tractor accurately, like slope, uneven soil condition, or unsymmetrical pull. But DynaTrac offers precision and repeatability, guaranteeing a high level of accuracy – and impacting yields, productivity, operational savings, reducing operator fatigue, and more.
