Commentary: Three takeaways from the Precision Ag Data Platforms Conference

The recent Precision Ag Data Platforms conference was one of the most interesting events I've attended this past year. Ag data management platforms are part of a relatively young industry by agricultural standards, but these offerings are growing and diverse. Like any young technology, growth comes with a lot of growing pains. Here are three reoccurring themes I heard all day.

As it courses along, water sweeps up sediments in the well-known process of erosion. Eventually, the sediments find a home, sometimes in a place where it isn’t wanted.
