Hoober Field Trip

This past weekend, we drove south down to Middletown, Delaware to go explore Hoober, Inc. On Saturday, we learned mostly on the topic of precision agriculture and how it has benefited the farming world from knowing where in a particular part of a field where your crops aren’t growing the best by using a drone, to having the tractor auto-pilot itself through GPS while you just sit there and watch. All of this is going towards increasing our food production as all people in the farming industry know that as the population grows, as a community, we will need to start growing food at a faster rate in order to provide for everyone in the world. The picture below shows all of us in front of a tractor that drives itself when programmed correctly. Hoober’s sure did blow my mind!
