Save Time and Money in 2018

Many of you have experienced the frustration of technology that doesn't perform up to your standards. This can not only be a headache, but can be costly when calculating down time of a machine in season. For example, an agronomist that I talked with recently claimed yield loss reached 1 bushel per acre, per day on soybeans planted after the optimum date. HTS Ag has come up with 2 ways to combat this potential down-time, and reduce the frustration that can come with in-season technology challenges.
  1. HTS Ag Connected Support
    This plan included phone and remote support with AgriSync software, allowing us to see what you see. We work extra hours in the spring and fall to keep you running, from 7am to 10pm Monday - Saturday, and 12pm - 6pm on Sunday. Unlimited support for the year is only $650!
  2. HTS Ag Connected Support + On-site Visits
    A trained eye across your machine pre-season could potentially save you down-time and a parts run once you get in the field. In addition to the connected support listed above, one of our trained staff will make a visit to your farm before you go to the field each season, updating firmware, testing equipment, and getting your machine field ready. Once you are in the field, you can concentrate on the task you are there to complete, not fighting with technology to get it working the way you want it to. On-site visits with connected support for the year within an hour of our locations is only $1200!

Suggested Devices For Internet In The Cab

By Ag Leader

We have heard many ask, "What device do you suggest for getting internet in the cab?" With our recent announcement, we've made it simple and convenient through a dedicated modem in the cab which connects to both RTK and AgFinitiĀ® seamlessly.

Yet we know one size doesn't fit all, so we allow you the flexibility to choose which internet option suits you best.

Let's take a look at the choices.

Watch Your Grain: You May Have a Hotspot

By OPIsystems

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.

Steering For Yield, Comfort In The Field
By Chad Swindoll, Ag Leader

The return on investment of GPS automated steering systems is almost never argued anymore. GPS technology has been proven to reduce overlap, resulting in fuel savings and productivity gains that farms of all sizes can appreciate. However, in my experience, the leading reason that farms today invest in a steering system is operator comfort. Many providers in the agricultural industry offer solutions that fit this niche and most all of them perform well. Producers face a decision when purchasing steering for their farms.

If each option is so similar, how do I choose?
