Conventional wisdom says that farmers aren't "wired." The only truth in this statement is that they aren't spending much time on desktop computers - in fact, the majority of their computing is done on mobile devices. Farmers are becoming increasingly dependent on wireless technology, from tweeting about industry issues, checking markets, researching equipment, booking trips to China and connecting with their kids on Facebook - all during their time in the cab of a GPS-piloted combine. This panel will explore the various applications for mobile technology on the farm, how farmers are getting serious business done with smartphones, and what new innovations are coming around the corner.
