Stop at the farm during a calm day and you might find Nolan Berg, Precision Systems Specialist, staring into the blue sky. With a remote control in hand, Nolan is doing what he loves most about his job at Peterson Farms Seed: flying his drone!
Since the start of 2014, Nolan has been our go-to guy when it comes to all things precision ag. Along with his passion for drones, Nolan recognizes the changing role that technology plays in a farmer’s day-to-day decision making.
