Farmers Riding Technology Wave

OSAGE BEACH, Mo. - 10 Jan 2008

 

The changes have come lightning quick in the nearly three decades since Missouri agricultural extension agents first preached the power of computers to skeptical farmers.

 

Gone are the bulky main frames, archaic floppy disks and bewildered stares that used to greet agricultural educators as they attempted to persuade farmers to embrace new technology. Computer-savvy cattlemen and crop farmers are lining up to try out the latest gadgets, from tractor-mounted mapping systems to market reports delivered as podcasts.

 

"Farmers are much more technologically savvy than people think," said John Travlos, a University of Missouri extension agent. "They have to be. Agriculture is big business."

 

From longtime computer users to novices looking for tips, farmers from across Missouri gathered Friday at a Lake of the Ozarks resort for the university's annual farm computer users' conference.

 

Topics ranged from basic spreadsheet use for managing finances to implementing "precision agriculture" techniques to maximize crop yields through computer-driven soil testing and fertilizer applications
