A fifth-generation farmer from the Salina area says technology and data collection in agriculture is improving decision-making and operations.
The comments came during a U.S. Senate committee hearing last week on the utilization of data in farming.
Justin Knopf grows wheat, alfalfa, soybeans and other crops across a 4500-acre farm in Gypsum. He’s also the vice president of the Kansas Association of Wheat Growers.
He testified about the increasing use of drones and satellite imagery to collect data from the farm.
