Ag Week 2014

Hortau, Inc. Sales Representative Ben Fullner holds up a Hortau Tx3 Field Monitoring Station to show how small it is. “It’s technology based after the old tensiometers,” he said. “But it’s been repackaged and patented. And it doesn’t require someone to go out into the field and monitor the equipment a lot.”

Cuming County farmers are being celebrated this week — Ag Week 2014.

But they are also keeping an eye on the calendar and an ear to the weather forecast, hoping to hear that some moisture is on its way before planting season begins and that a repeat of 2012 isn’t in the picture.

The lack of rain just two growing seasons ago took a toll on corn and soybean yields. But it also had an impact on places the eye can’t see — such as groundwater levels. That year’s drought brought about more irrigation restrictions in the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District and prompted more farmers to seek ways to irrigate where it will do the most good.

Ben Fullner, who was raised on a farm near Beemer, is optimistic about a relatively new technology that can help farmers avoid overwatering. Fullner is a sales representative for Hortau, Inc., which bills itself as “global leader in wireless, web-based irrigation management.”
