It’s time for you Farm of the Future Report. I’m Tim Hammerich.

In modern agriculture, there are still a lot of jobs that require human labor. Specialized roles like that of an agronomist or farm advisor, require expertise in checking fields, knowing the latest research, determining cost-efficient solutions, and providing recommendations. To keep all of that work organized and streamlined, FarmQA has built a digital tool. Here’s senior technology specialist Ben Munson.

Munson… “We have crop scouting tools, recommendation writing, and then the reporting side of it to roll that up and to have that digital record log of what's happened in a field throughout the course of a season, multiple seasons. And then taking that to be able to analyze what happens across fields, across varieties, et cetera. We kind of have that data to massage it and get analytics out of that.”

Munson says they work with the agronomists and advisors, but the end result is hopefully better and more reliable recommendations to the farmer.

Munson… “We also allow the import of data. So that's something we do really well is if you come in from a different system that you're already have a digital platform that you're using, we have a bulk import tool to ring in unlimited number of shape files or field boundaries, grower/field, name structures, crops. And so we make it very painless to transition from a different solution as well through that import wizard.”
