CropLife Conversations - PrecisionAg Institute
Paul Schrimpf Conversation
The second in a series of sit down interviews, Barb Glenn talks with Paul Schrimpf of the PrecisionAg Institute in our new web video. Here Paul talks about the importance of new technologies in agriculture and how growers are quick to adopt new methods to use emerging technologies, including GPS. Paul also mentions that the new technologies make it easier for growers to be agricultural stewards because of the precise measurements and calculations they bring to their daily occupations.
