    How secure is farm management data?

    Reading a bit on another thread about how the share trading platform robinhood was selling data harvested from its users for millions, I wonder how farm management data stored remotely might be used as very detailed market research for others? Should it be a concern?

    State of your crops?

    Given the late drilling date and the amount of rain that’s gone on them I’m pleasantly pleased with the state of my crops. I do have two small fields that are below par but most are looking well. How are others looking? Wheat and barley below, no rape this year but locally it looks well.
