Precision Farming and Data Privacy

Who gets to see my precision farming data?  If you are collecting precision farming data, who gets to look at it?  If you are using a product that uses "cloud storage"  your information may be available to those who have sold you the applications you are using.  Be sure to check it out.  Farm Bureau Resolutions Committee is looking at precision farming and privacy issues.  If you are a Farm Bureau member, perhaps you should weigh in on the issue.  A recent request to EPA for data on individual livestock farmers is one of the issues that prompted a need to look at the issue.

Check out what John McGuire had to say on the subject in February in his Farm Futures Blog
