Here are the web links I mentioned in my presentation Does Precision Farming Pay? at the grower meeting on Tuesday.  The following are calculators that you can use to put in your variables particular to your operation and determine your estimate savings by adopting technology.
www.caseih.com  (Launch Calculator)
stellarsupport.deere.com/en_US/  -(Tool/Calculators)

The www.heywhatsthat.com is great if you are thinking about putting in a fixed base station for RTK correction signal, it figures in trees and ground contours and allows you to see what your line of site coverage would be.

If the Jeopardy Quiz sparked some additional questions about Worker Protection Standards feel free to contact our presenters Laurie Gordon with Oregon Dept of AG Pesticide User Certification & Licensing (541) 617-6097 lgordon@oda.state.or.us or Garnet Cooke with Oregon OSHA (503) 378-3274 garnet.r.cooke@state.or.us

Flooding, an excellent time to write a quick blog post.

Our annual Grower Meeting hosted by Tangent is coming up next week, Tuesday, 27th. Registration and Continental Breakfast begins at 7:00AM.

We will have door prizes and drawings during the meeting for those present. In a departure from previous years, we'll do two of the drawings a little different. One drawing will be from meeting attendees who are also existing blog subscribers, that's you guys if you got an email linking this blog post. The second drawing will be from meeting attendees who subscribe to the blog following the invitation at meeting. The drawing will be held Friday, Nov 30th and we'll contact winners via their email from their blog subscription.
