UAV Expo Takes on Vegas
By Kyle Fischer, HTS Ag

2019 UAV expo in Las Vegas Nevada. The 3-day event included new product announcements, product demonstrations, and workshops. Keynote speakers from the FAA, NASA, and Uber addressed the conference on where they forecasted the UAV industry may be going.

Monday started off with field product demonstrations from several vendors. Autel Robotics gave us a teaser on their new thermal drone that is due to be released in early 2020. Aerovironment showed us how their fixed wing hybrid drone can cover large areas and map them quickly, accurately, and create useful maps for agriculture.

Improve Fall Nitrogen Practices

By Sam Worley, Ag Leader

In most of the US, this fall was a wet one. Chances are, you didn’t get much of a chance to get fall anhydrous in the ground.

Beacuse of this, we wanted our agronomist, Barry Anderson, to answer a few of our burning questions related to fall nitrogen application.

Managing Stored Grain in Delayed Harvest 

By OPIsystems

Did you know? An OPI system can help you manage your stored grain in a delayed harvest

Wet weather can have a significant impact on harvest. This poses a challenge for farmers who are harvesting, drying, and storing grain. Grain harvested under these wet conditions will be at higher moisture levels than in an average crop year. Delaying the harvest could also result in an increased rate of grain deterioration and contamination. Crops are at greater risk for rot and mold growth and with the increase in wet weather, crops may develop mycotoxins.

Microsoft to End Support for Windows 7
By OPIsystems

Microsoft has announced that they will no longer be supporting Windows 7 after January 14, 2020. What does end of support mean? Per Microsoft, if you continue to use Windows 7 after support has ended, your PC will still work, but it may become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Your PC will continue to start and run, but Microsoft will no longer provide technical support, software updates or security updates. This will leave all computers that are on Windows 7 vulnerable to virus/attack after that date.

Don't forget your fill dates!

When working with an OPI grain management system, both the Integris Pro and the OPI Blue systems rely on the fill date of the bin being entered in the system to function properly. While you are entering the fill date, it's also a good time to select grain type, and pick out the moisture curve you want to use.

With the OPI Blue system, you can select the "Bin Info" button on the top right, when viewing the bin, then select the "Edit" button on the bottom left of the page.

With Integris Pro, you can right click and select "Create New Session" under the Configuration and Manage tabs.

If you have questions when working through this, don't hesitate to contact our talented group of experts for assistance.
