Also speaking during the Cultivate Conference was Caroline Chan, general manager of the 5G infrastructure division at Intel. “So much technology is coming into agriculture, and I’m pleasantly surprised by how advanced North Dakota is in driving this area.” During the conference, Grand Farm, Trilogy Networks and their Rural Cloud Initiative unveiled the FarmGrid. This project aims to deliver all-in-one solution for farmers to purchase precision ag equipment that integrates seamlessly on one platform. Chan believes that data powered by 5G connectivity is and will continue to drive the efficiency of farming. “This 5G cannot just be enabling iPhones. It has to also be enabling different verticals that benefit society. Everyone has to eat, so farming is the most important pillar we have.” Listen to the story.
