“The more efficient we can make ourselves and our customers the better,” says Ben Huber. “Whether it’s aerial imaging, nutrient stewardship technologies, or other innovative practices, our priorities within the AgValidity and MiField programs are to mitigate risk for our customers.

We can test the best of this technology out on a broad basis and help identify the advantages and challenges. That way farmers aren’t losing a whole season by testing something that may not provide them the best solution.”
