“There is a much quicker turnaround with the help of ScoutPro.”
Connor Martin is a third year crop scout from Summitville, Indiana working for Co-Alliance LLP; he scouts for almost 20 growers. He is a junior in agricultural business transferring to Ivy Tech Community College.
At the beginning of the scouting season he takes stand counts, checks for emergence, and has a heavy emphasis on weed ID. Mid to late season he is looking for insects, diseases, checking tassel emergence, and taking yield checks. Connor knows that ScoutPro has been a huge help in the field. Connor’s previous experience scouting for his family’s farm required him to carry books for ID in the field. With ScoutPro on his iPad he can identify an issue in as little as 30 seconds, as well as quickly add issues to reports that he already recognizes. “There is a much quicker turnaround with the help of ScoutPro.”
Connor looks forward to an opportunity to return home and be a part of his family’s farming operation.
