  Justin Dahlgren and Eric Thalken are farm managers in Nebraska. They have adapted to using Granular, one of the world’s leading farm management software tools. Granular provides farmers with all the necessary tools that analyze operational, agronomic, and financial information for their farms. Justin’s farm primarily grows corn and soybeans tied to their 8,000-head feedlot. On the other hand, Eric’s 2,300-acre farm has transitioned to organic farming recently and aims to be 100% organic this year.   Justin and Eric join me today to share their passion for agriculture and how they utilized current technologies to optimize farm management. They discuss what their farms are all about, the crops they produce, and their specific roles. They describe some of the farming practices that improved the introduction of innovative software. They also explain how farm owners should interpret data in a way that benefits their farming operations and share what they believe the future of agriculture will be like in 25 years.     “Regenerative agriculture will become a commodity because that will be the only way to produce crops that people want to consume.” - Justin Dahlgren       This Week on The Future of Agriculture Podcast:   Justin's and Eric's farm backgrounds and their current agricultural ventures. Why Justin transitioned to organic farming and how it started. How they determine if they can scale a process. What brought Justin from Sales Agronomy to farming again? Focusing on new prospects and how to choose among many new ‘shiny objects’. Utilizing data gathered from different types of technologies in their farms. Technologies that significantly impacted their farming practices. The people they plan to hire to make data analysis easier. What they believe the agriculture setting will look like in the next few decades     Key Takeaways:   Technology is helping farmers become more regenerative. It's not humanly possible to get through all the data and get through everything that is actionable. Farmers have been collecting data for decades, but many farmers have yet to fully utilize them to make the right decisions.     Resources Mentioned:   Future of Agriculture 107: Organic Agriculture at Scale with John McKeon of Tanimura and Antle Future of Agriculture 110: How Carbon Trading Could Benefit Farmers with Aldyen Donelly of Nori Granular     Connect with Justin Dahlgren:   Facebook Email: jdahlgren93@hotmail.com     Connect with Eric Thalken:   Burkey Farms LinkedIn LinkedIn           This episode is sponsored by: Granular - Manage Your Farm with Confidence   Granular is an agriculture software company dedicated to building stronger, more profitable farms.
