It’s easy to see how technology over the centuries has led to vast gains in efficiency and increased food production. Over time, Dietrich Kastens says early adopters have thrived while non-adopters typically find themselves looking for a different line of work.
The Herndon, Kan., no-tiller will look at the fast-moving vs. slow-moving adapted ag technologies and the problems, pitfalls, challenges and rewards for early technology adoption. He’ll also examine the philosophy of technology adoption and how adopting or not adopting new technologies might impact a farm for generations. Finally, Kastens will look at farm businesses in the new century and how technology adoption decisions made today might impact the long-run productivity, profitability and persistence of multi-generational farm businesses.
