Planter Technology Institute: Helping Farmers Produce More to Feed the World

Seed Solutions partnered with Linco Precision to host the Planter Technology Institute late last week. The Institute is a mobile, climate controlled expandable trailer with a video wall and demonstration units.

Brian Zeeb, of Seed Solutions, told WGEL the goal of the program was to help farmers plant a good crop and ensure good seed-to-soil contact to boost yields through the growing season. Mr. Zeeb said we can expect continued advancements in farming technology and more high tech educational tools like the Planter Technology Institute. He said there will be 9 billion people by the year 2050. He said farmers across the Midwest, the state of Illinois, and here in Bond county will have to utilize technology to feed that population.
