Why Join a Grower Peer Group?

Being a farmer has its challenges. Any business owner faces challenges, but most of them have at least one, if not a team of people to share those challenges with and come up with solutions. Farmers, on the other hand, can feel like they are on an island with no one to share their thoughts with. Many farmers don't feel comfortable sharing their challenges or successes with their neighbors because of their competitive nature, independent mindset or concern about confidentiality.

DisplayCast Unlock Available Now!
by Ag Leader

Ag Leader announced in August that DisplayCast, which adds real-time, display-to-display communication in the InCommand 1200 and InCommand 800 would be coming available- and it is here!

Display information, including maps and guidance lines, synced across field activities increases productivity and immediate decision-making. Sharing data between multiple displays running in the same field, running in different fields, or running across the operation is now seamless.

InCommand displays will share coverage maps for swath control, guidance lines, field summary information, yield and planting maps and more. No matter the season, there is always a short window of time to optimize productivity. Having guidance lines, coverage maps and other valuable decision-making data helps growers run at full speed.

Farms running more than one combine, planter or other machine can now be completely in-tune with what is happening in each implement. Sharing variety maps from the planter's display to the combine during harvest makes data readily available without flash drives and desktop software.

For more information about how DisplayCast works, contact HTS Ag at 800-741-3305 or email sales@htsag.com.

Watch Your Grain: You May Have a Hotspot Now

By OPI Integris

You may have dried and cooled your grain for safe winter storage; however, the spoilage risk for stored grain is always present. If the stored grain is exposed to extreme initial storage conditions such as high moisture and/or temperature for a significant period before drying, or if the grain contains a high percentage of fines, broken and immature kernels, the spoilage risk is even greater. During the winter months we often pay less attention to our stored commodities, thinking that our grain is safer during winter months.

Uses for Drones in Agriculture
By Shari Wahling, HTS Ag

My husband really wants a drone. One night after the kids went to bed, he went into full trying to convince the wife mode. He told me all about the things the drone could do to help him in his farming operation and how great it is that the company that I work for happens to sell DJI drones and Drone Deploy software. He thought not only would him getting a drone help him in his farming operation, but also help the company I work for with their drone sales. Win, win.

I was a little more than skeptical of this. I figured he really just wanted a drone because it would be a fun toy for him to play with. I did, however, promise to look at some information and keep an open mind. What I found is that there really are uses for drones in agriculture and benefits too.
