The past ten years have seen an explosion of new technologies entering agriculture. This wave of activity holds potential for the agricultural industry. But despite the potential, the volume of activity and the vast range of new products has created confusion and frustration.

To help other producers get value from agtech, we interviewed five innovative farmers on their journey with agtech and captured their tips for getting agtech ready:

  1. Start with the problem

  2. Find technologies that fit your workflows and systems

  3. Evaluate more than the product

  4. Keep it simple and start slow

  5. Look for inspiration and don’t be afraid to ask for help
