Share Your Farm Data?

Posted by Dan Frieberg on 2/27/20 8:10 AM

It’s hard to avoid hearing about the promise of “big data.” Thanks to Edward Snowden’s revelations, it is also easy to spin conspiracy theories. There are many big-data analytics examples cited, such as Amazon and Netflix. They suggest books and movies we may enjoy based on what we have “liked” in the past or what other people who seem similar to us like. Google, the National Security Agency and others evidentially collect data bout what we search, what and whom we email, and much more.

Several years ago, I had customers tell me we could grow our company a lot faster if we had something like their planter monitor that flashed the dollars being lost from poor singulation.

Success in VR Seeding

Posted by Dan Frieberg on 2/4/20 8:15 AM

I try very hard to not fall in the trap of “geek” talk. It’s a special challenge, as we are a company full of geeks!

I describe what we do as the collision of agronomy and technology. It’s the technology side that leads us to becoming geeks.

Quality Data: Is Bad Data better than No Data?

Posted by Dan Frieberg on 1/22/20 8:15 AM

If you’ve ever traveled to London and been a passenger on their subway system, the "tube," you’ve heard the phrase “mind the gap.” It’s kind of funny because that’s not how Americans would say it. We’d probably say “watch your step.” The long straight cars and the curves in the tracks cause the gaps between the train cars and the loading platform; therefore, passengers are warned to “mind the gap.”
