Farmers Need Tech Too

By Jessica Denson

Happy National Agriculture Day! On this day meant for our ag industry, we want to talk about an important issue—getting broadband access for our nation's farmers.

Farmers and technology may not, at first, sound like they go together. But, if you think that's the case, you would be wrong.

Modern farmers use technology for everything from monitoring important weather changes to general farm equipment.

For farmers with an Internet connection, their use of technology has truly transformed their operations. It's another important reason why we must continue our work to become a Connected Nation.

These stats provide a glimpse into the use of an Internet connection among agriculture producers in northern Michigan.

Connected is a facilitated broadband-technology planning program designed to propel communities to the forefront of the digital economy. Connected gathers information like this in each participating community, providing an unprecedented look at the access, adoption, and use of broadband across agriculture, business, residential, and other sectors.
