In this episode we feature four interviews conducted in connection with the inaugural Tech Hub Live Conference and Expo hosted in Des Moines, IA, on July 21-22, 2021. Guests featured in this episode include: John Scott (Purdue Extension), Aaron Sindelar (Central Valley Ag), Brian Van de Stroet and Jeff Wessels (Frenchman Valley Co-op), and David Scheiderer (Integrated Ag Services). Guests focused on topics of UAV applications in agriculture, ag sustainability, precision ag integration at co-ops, and tech-enabled crop consulting, respectively. Start time stamps for individual interviews are provided below. Zach Rystrom, former co-host of the FarmBits podcast, conducted the interviews for this episode as his last contribution to the podcast. We are grateful to Zach for his contributions throughout Summer and Fall 2021! In our next episode, we will return to more traditional FarmBits content featuring Naeem Zafar, CEO of TeleSense, who will talk with us about remote grain monitoring. We will begin featuring new hosts next week and branching out into two topics in three weeks!
