Precision farming tools are a part of many no-tillers’ systems and while technology often improves efficiency and productivity, it can also pose adoption challenges.

During the 4th annual National Strip-Tillage Conference in Omaha, we assembled a diverse group of farmers for a structured, yet at times spontaneous dinner conversation.

With a focus on strategies, objectives and outcomes of utilizing precision farming systems, the discussion also touched on influential factors when making precision purchases and the significance of having a reliable support network.

At the table were Kerry and Angela Knuth from Mead, Neb.; Jeff Reints from Shell Rock, Iowa, and Tim Leischner from Parkston, S.D.

In today’s No-Till Farmer podcast brought to you by Calmer Corn Heads, we share selected excerpts from our roundtable conversation, touching on defining precision objectives and early payback.
