Science Fairs Are Not Just for Students

Science fairs have long been a place for students to think creatively and execute hypotheses they wanted to challenge. Many ideas stemmed from professors inspiring students to take risks, test their hypotheses, create solutions, and promote a new way of thinking that could solve problems. Having our own Data Science Fair at AGCO to better serve our customers spurred conversations, generated new ideas, and created a forum to discuss data in a way that any person whether, “tech-savvy” or not, could understand.

Smart Farming and Space Farming: The Next Frontier of Food Production

When it comes to advances in farming technology, the sky’s the limit—or is it? Some may think that space technology and smart farming have nothing in common. And yet both fields seek the same goal: to increase food production while reducing input costs and expenses. Smart farming and space technology are coming together to make space farming a reality.
