Growth Points: Avoid precision equipment spring madness
Hill says the industry is now further along, meaning that the numbers of different systems and versions have multiplied.
“All of us are moving forward and we have good people, but they may not remember every version being used out there.” When you have the latest version, you are likely to have the best experience. Examine and replace cables. Even in a brand new install, cables can be the culprit. Take a close look at cables to see if anything is loose or shorting out, or if you simply have a bad cable or rodent damage. “Mice do like to chew cables,” Hill said.
Of course, all of this preparation and troubleshooting involves real people with varying personalities, so maintaining a positive attitude will always improve the outcome.
Hill ended by saying, “If you are a precision ag guy working with growers faced with challenges of this kind, the first thing is be professional. You need to exhibit in the field what you would want people to exhibit to you. Be a person who really wants to help the customer solve the problem. Treat them as you would want to be treated.”
