Among the highlights of the 2016 Precision Farming Dealer Summit held at the beginning of January in Indianapolis, Ind., were the 10 dealer roundtable sessions that offered face-to-face opportunities for dealers to ask their peers questions, discuss challenges and share solutions to pressing precision problems.
The Precision Farming Dealer editorial staff sat in on these discussions and brought back the top takeaways and insights from dealers on topics ranging from the practical use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, to successful approaches for selling used hardware.

Confusion over the current and future role of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in the ag industry persists and many dealers at this roundtable discussion struggled to see how this technology fits in their product mix.
