"In April, our farm was visited by Jim and Jeff Burton.
The Burtons, a father and son team from Little Rock, Arkansas, developed and patented the AutoProbe. The AutoProbe was invented by Jim, who has an engineering background and participated in extensive specialty crop farming.
We usually don’t add blog posts based on news from another company, but we truly believe this is a BIG DEAL and worth adding note to our site. Of all the things we have learned in bringing new technology like AutoProbe to market, the simple fact is that "Big Ag" is firmly in control of the “hearts” and minds of most farmers.
