Green Rivers Utilizing Connected Farm

Farming in Utah can be exciting, yet demanding.  One of the challenges that faces farmers in Green River, Utah, is the lack of precipitation.  Although the average rainfall is a mere 7.11 inches per year, the land is very fertile.  Ryan Thornock, CFO of Green River Companies, manages 7,500 acres (2,500 acres tillable) for growing melons, feed corn, alfalfa, potatoes, wheat, and sweet corn.  The farm is well known for their tasty melons, but water management is always a concern.  The nearby river provides enough irrigated water during the growing season, still there are many challenges.  Ryan points out, “Water isn’t free in Utah, so tracking our costs on the computer is important for better decision making.”

Hartung Brothers Utilizing Connected Farm

Hartung Brothers have set the standard for seed corn and vegetable production, ranking 5th in the nation.  As their operation continues to grow, so does the need for technology that allows them to save time and make better management decisions.  Hartung Brothers has been a long time user of Trimble’s precision ag products, especially the FmX® integrated display, EZ-Boom 2010 system, and RTK.  The next logical step for Hartung Brothers involves using wireless data transfer with their existing precision ag equipment.  This allows them to exchange important information including A-B guidance lines, prescription maps, and application data between multiple workers in the field and the farm office to improve access to data while improving their field record keeping in the office.  As the farm continues to grow, better management of field data will be critical.
