Max Armstrong talks about precision control tech for scrapers.

Using scrapers on the farm isn't all that new, but the addition of GPS takes it to another level. The technology has come quickly over the last five years, Dave Benson, Ashland Industries, says it has been coming into use at a good time as farmers need to remediate fields from flooding last year. Precision maps and GPS help control, turning the job into a one-man operation.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
