Looking at precision farming: Truro Monitor Farm
I’m looking forward to regrouping everyone from last year to carry forward more discussion on a variety of new subjects.
Our first Monitor Farm meeting of the season is on 2 November 2017, looking at precision farming.
When we talk about making a profit from cereals most people say what can we cut out in growing a crop. With precision farming we start to make savings on inputs with the help of technology.
In particular, I’m hoping to learn from other people’s experiences and how they compare to decisions I’ve already made and those I’ve yet to make, such as with variable rate N.
Having been a Monitor Farmer for just over a year, it is giving me a better insight to my business especially with the help of benchmarking.
