Hinson continues call for more precision ag resources


A U.S. Representative from Iowa says the next farm bill needs to expand access to precision agriculture tools.

Republican Ashley Hinson tells Brownfield can help farmers navigate through challenging conditions, like drought. “Precision agriculture and innovation in the ag space helps to get better yields even when things are really tough.”

She says this technology can also help lower input costs and environmental impacts. “With margins, what they are right now, having these reliable and stable programs for them are really, really important.”

Earlier this year, Hinson introduced a bill, the Producing Responsible Energy and Conservation Incentives and Solutions for the Environment (PRECISE) Act, that would increase the availability of precision ag tools through existing USDA programs.
