Calgary, Canada, April 19, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Today Tom Staples, President at Echelon Ag Inc., announced the unveiling of their newly branded technology – Precision VRT, which has already earned the reputation of changing the way you farm.
“Many farmers are very traditional when it comes to their farming methods, and are hesitant to try a new technology on their farms,” explains Staples. “Agriculture is an extremely important aspect in feeding the world and today’s farmers are very keen on researching new leading-edge technologies, but they do have that hesitation to try something new until it has a proven benefit to their farming operation.”
Whether you’re looking to increase yield, profits or the quality of your crop, Precision VRT is the technology you’ve been looking for – and communicate with farmers about what is working for them and what is not. With capabilities to utilize current machinery and easy to implement software it optimizes fertilizer usage, applying lower rates to less productive areas of a field, and a higher rate of fertilizer is applied to more productive sections of land. This is why many farmers have fewer reservations about variable rate technology and are willing to try a less traditional approach to improve their crops.
“We want to educate farmers on the accuracy of variable rate technology and how it benefits their fields,” concludes Staples. “We work very closely with our farm customers to ensure a positive experience. Once our prescription is loaded onto the farmer’s equipment, it will adjust the necessary crop input application more accurately than any other system on the market. That’s why we decided to brand our service Precision VRT – it’s precise, efficient, effective and it yields results.”
