Raising abundant crops has long been the focus of farmers around the world. This work is an art and a science, and now broadband-backed tools are helping produce more consistent high crop yields for America’s agriculture community.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Internet technology is spreading throughout farms nationwide. Approximately 70 percent of farms that net a quarter of a million dollars or more per year use the Internet to conduct farm business. And more than 40 percent of smaller farms are tapping into broadband technology too.
