Planning for the Farm Labor Shortage
Farmers continue to face a farm labor shortage. According to a recent article at AgWeb.com, Igino Cafiero, co-founder and CEO of Bear Flag Robotics said, “One of the biggest challenges farmers face today is the availability of skilled labor to execute time-sensitive operations that impact farming outcomes. Autonomy offers a safe and productive alternative to address that challenge head on.”

One solution to the ongoing farm labor shortage, is to do more with fewer hands and do it more quickly. The Dura-ABS™ DI Automated Direct Injection System lets you do just that by reducing the amount of time and the number of people it takes to fill your sprayer. Austin Woodward of Woodward Farms recently upgraded his trailer with a DI and reported back to us his satisfaction. “Great filling system. Went from 20 minutes load time with two people to less than 7 minutes by myself using the Dura Direct Injection System. It allows me to multi-task while filling my sprayer. Takes hours off my machine and keeps me in the field.”
