The uncertainty of tariffs and congressional action has left many growers concerned about how to manage the upcoming growing seasons. The uncertainty of tariffs and congressional action has left many growers concerned about how to manage the upcoming growing seasons. Farmer and Ceres imaging expert Kirk Stueve: Well that's a whole different story about trying to figure out what the heck the congressional people are going to do.

Well that's a whole different story about trying to figure out what the heck the congressional people are going to do. We can't predict that. And so this is about managing risk. With that volatility in the market, the savvy growers are left with the option of spending less and using analytics and data during the growing season to put a bit more into their fields to try and reap the rewards. That's it in a nutshell. And if you don't have those tools at your disposal then you're really exposed until Congress acts. And who knows when that might happen. So I'm a farmer. I just listened to this interview and I'm saying this guy's from Ceres, how do I hook up with Ceres to help me, in your words, achieve precision agriculture. Absolutely the best place to start, and we have a nice website with contact information and so forth and so if you just go to ceresimaging.net we have a contact form you can fill out and we respond quickly. And who knows they might even get in touch with me eventually.
