“A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.”
– Charles Darwin
Following the holidays and the start of a new year, and with the upcoming growing season, we often take time to reflect. We think about what matters most and the changes we’d like to make in our lives – personal or professional. No, I’m not talking about that annual diet that we give up in a week, but the “things” of value to us and how to improve our actions to increase that value.
If there is one thing that seems to be a scarce resource these days, it’s time. It’s the one commodity that we can’t create more of. Whether you use your time with family, play or work, it all flies away at the same pace. Unfortunately for many of us, the latter takes up the most of our time, leaving little of it left for family and play. Ultimately, the only way to use time more effectively is to work smarter, not harder. This is especially true for today’s farmers – some of the hardest workers alive.
So how do you work smarter on the farm? The answer is technology. There is a plethora of tools to help do the job more efficiently, freeing you to use your time for other, more enjoyable things. One such tool is Valley Scheduling. It takes the guessing game out of irrigation and gives you back the time spent figuring out how much, when and where to irrigate crops.
