Precision farming improves while costs decrease

Precision farming is in easier reach every day. The technology allowing efficiency, ease and accuracy in field work is becoming more affordable. Utah Extension Geo-specialist Phil Rasmussen makes the analogy of color television sets that, in today’s dollars, were a half-century ago thousands of dollars and out of reach for most households. The market place, he says, responded with more affordable sets that today fall within most budgets. The same is happening with precision agriculture. The equipment and demand for it, is making it more prolific and more affordable.
