    A Farming Productivity Tool for the New Year

    By AgFuse Administrator

    Updated Dec 31, 2020 

    Farming is such a unique occupation because the intensity of our work oscillates with the seasons. For most farmers, winter marks a time for some rest and reflection--and a new year ushers in new hope... I want to have X amount of acres under irrigation... Are any of the three-year or one-year objectives supporting a long-term objective? For example, if your ten-year objective is to have one-thousand acres under irrigation on your farm and your one-year objective is to install one-hundred acres worth of irrigation, then you have a milestone along the way to achieving your larger, long-term vision... For example, you may not identify a daily habit that’s related to your objective of having one-thousand acres under irrigation, but maintaining a clean fleet of equipment could be as easy as making end-of-day equipment cleanup a habit...
