Technology

One tool in agriculture’s quest for sustainability

Some of the latest technologies being used include:

To stay competitive in this fast changing and commodity driven industry, we must continue to be innovative. Adopting and implementing new technology is a critical part of becoming more efficient and is one tool that the management at Walker Farms uses to keep a competitive advantage. Many new technologies allow us to be more environmentally friendly by applying fewer products and placing them precisely where they need to go. Nobody knows our farms like we do and being able to analyze data and make decisions in-house allows us to maximize our use of technology.

The slideshow to the right shows a few data management tools that we use to manage every acre instead of an entire farm. This is a small sample of the data that goes into making decisions on crops, varieties, fertility, and drainage.
