Grain growers urged to "future proof" machinery investment Grain growers are encouraged to "future proof" their farm machinery investment by factoring into their equipment purchasing decision-making the expected evolution of agricultural technology and the capabilities of currently available machinery... The advice comes from central New South Wales primary producer and Nuffield Scholar James Hassall who has studied the future role of precision agriculture (PA) and the new technologies being developed to enhance PA. Mr Hassall says the development of new PA electronic equipment has allowed growers to increase the efficiency of their operations and develop new farming practices the technology can become superseded relatively quickly and does not tend to hold its capital value...
