Technology is changing the way the world does business. Agriculture and farming may seem far removed from the Silicon Valley and other technology supercenters, but that doesn’t mean technology has nothing to offer in these industries, though. In fact, if you’re not taking advantage of some of these technology advancements, you may be missing out on huge profit windfalls for your agricultural enterprise.

Why Do You Need to Take Advantage of New Technology?

Farmers work that land to make amazing things happen. Many of today’s farmers literally have it in their blood having worked for generations to make the land produce. Sometimes, change is hard, but there is no denying the good that can come from adopting agriculture technology, according to the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture who credits agricultural technology for a variety of benefits, including:

  • Increased crop yields.
  • Decreased use of fertilizers, water, and pesticides.
  • Reduces impact on the planet.
  • Fewer chemicals running off into rivers, streams, and groundwater.
  • Improvements in worker safety.

In the eternal quest for fitness and health, there are all kinds of things you can do to track your personal fitness. From the latest technologically enhanced fitness bands to low-tech pedometers, and all points in between you, too, can track each and every step on your fitness journey.

Now, you can track the steps your chicken takes as well.

At least that is the case with one Chinese company that is GPS tracking their chickens to provide outstanding transparency and let you know that you’re getting chicken that is healthy and organic. This is made possible thanks to GoGo Chicken, which is a new GPS tracker for chicken.  The GPS tracking device is attached to the chicken’s leg and sends a constant stream of data related to the location of the chicken, what the chicken eats, and even how much exercise the chicken gets.

Most teen-related vehicle crashes are due to inexperienced drivers. Once teens pass their driver’s test and receive their license, many mistakenly believe they’re experienced drivers. Not so.

Sadly, according to the National Safety Council, car crashes impact individuals of all ages, but are the leading cause of death in teens. In 2016, there were a total of 4,853 crash-related deaths that involved at least one teen driver.

Becoming licensed only means your teen has passed their on-road test and met the practice hours required by the state. Although at this point they do have some basic knowledge of being able to navigate their vehicles in challenging situations like high traffic areas, they still need to gain a lot more driving experience.

Here are some areas of teen driver inexperience:

  1. Vehicle Handling
  • How the vehicle’s balance is affected by braking, acceleration, deceleration and turns
  • Adjusting to the weight and size of the vehicle
  • Contact road patches
  • How to regain control in front- and rear-wheel drive vehicle skids
