Finding the ground truth
Scott Hutchings, Senior Agronomist at Cox Rural in Keith, South Australia, has been working with Precision Agriculture for his clients to help make more informed decisions. The soil testing data allows Scott to make objective decisions based on science.
Furthermore, he outlined how the partnership with Precision Ag has helped streamline some of Cox Rural’s business processes.
“The labour saving has been huge for us. PA have the staff, the machinery and do it more efficiently and accurately than I would. They just give us the data, and as an Agronomist that’s all I’m interested in.”
“I just ring them up and they upload it to the iPad in the tractor, and it’s that easy. It’s hard to believe how easy it is.”
“It’s a product anyone can use. You don’t need to understand it, you just plug it into the computer and drive. This is really helpful when you have numerous operators through that driver’s seat”.
“Soil is where everything happens, it’s where our bank of resources is, it’s where all the potential of the crop lies, yet it’s the thing we know the least about”.
