Farmer Stories: Answer Plots Help Farmers Take Advantage of Tech

As we reflect on the past 20 years, one thing that amazes us is how far agriculture technology has come. From traited seed to remote sensing, it’s clear that staying on top of the latest advances in agriculture can be a daunting task for most farmers. When we design Answer Plot® events, one goal is to ensure farmers are aware of the latest technology and resources available to help them grow their businesses. A visit to an Answer Plot event may help you navigate ever-changing ag technology tools.
 
Capture opportunities
Michael Corderman, a corn and soybean grower in Armstrong, Iowa, says staying on top of technology makes him a better farmer. He’s attended Answer Plot events for several years for the progressive insights that are shared.

Finding Answers at Answer Plots
But, using the technology is just one part of the equation. Knowing how to process the information that the technology supplies and apply it in practical ways is another hurdle farmers face. That’s where Answer Plot events can help. We demonstrate new technology, but we also help digest the data to reveal what impact it will have on your farm.
 
John Preussner of Dundee, Iowa, recalls the first Answer Plot event he attended 14 years ago.

He uses the information to place different hybrids on his farm as a way to help manage risk. John is confident in the data because it’s replicated over many environments and under different production practices.
