"Here's what was that like. Oh do well. A lot of it was kind of boring. Because you all you had to do. Autopilot follow the map and then it would automatically route itself automatically turn itself. you'd automatically connected to the other tractor. You could do those crazy. it'd be. Yeah we did a little bit. There's no manual. like no. of course the automation was the crazier part town. And then for me. It was like awesome to meet like their current. Cto and be in the vp. Like it's interesting the vp. For example of of their tech industry is the designer of the tractor. Pretty much the the show the of their technology department and is just dude to like to sit down with the person that actually designed tractor seats a lot of form that a lot of the operation. A lot of the technologies to you know. I was starstruck in a lot of this. But it's interesting once you get to meet these people after you've tried it and then there's like why did they explain it to you like this. Has the purpose of this. The cooler is there because the dude some of these farmers are in the truck for like four hours. Fourteen hours fourteen hour days and this and this is all stuff that the average i'll use consumer yes doesn't realize about dude i'm like oh my god you know. I can't tell these companies to pan. Whatever it is that they do but it is just really interesting to see how certain like you would have never assumed that. Agriculture was so modern. Who would have ever told you that. Agriculture was so modern at the that other industries were just so behind do they do they ever talk about. Let's say perception of farming today ever kind of soothing. All the time okay and it has a lot to do with like it's interesting. The first tractors that they built john deere like one hundred years ago infrastructure that they design actually designed it with horse rains. I think i've seen that one right. So the reason why they did that is because they had a problem with farmers wanting to use their horses so they tried to make the tractor as similar to a horse's possible and so it's the same thing like they don't remove like if you want the tractor to be fully manual and operated on your own you can but it's not because they need for it to be it's just because even the perception of farmers lot of these men are in their sixty seventy s. They don't wanna stop farming and so they want to continue feeling link the tractors something they control so its that perception then..

"john deere" Discussed on Scoops with Danny Mac
"The website where you go and get a plan get organized. Let's talk about the john deere. Classic rick and leading up to the british interesting field in terms of perhaps as we've talked about some opportunities to find soft spots in the market There will be some guys as always with opportunity to get into the british field on the line. How do you approach a week like this and we always talk about the guy you've got to have when there's a field without big names. Is there a guy you have to have or do you go about building a card in a different way rick. They're certainly guys. I have to have but it is just a little jarring when you're paying essentially two thousand dollars more for every single one of these names that you normally pay for just got up to readjust then reassess Kind of change your perspective a little bit. I mean the someone like a kevin in to me. He's ninety seven hundred dollars on draftkings. There's a handful of guys more expensive than am. I find him to be pretty intriguing. He i believe he has legitimate winning upside. We have seen him do that in much more difficult fields over the course of his career. He's starting to a lot better. Which is great for him because he's been generally sour for most of his career and he came off. Miscut really missed the cut by a shot. Which i don't really care about but the four stars before that have all been top twenty so i think he's someone that Is sneaky live to win this golf tournament. Rick rick run. Good dot com. Gimme another guy or two that you believe in a field like this has legitimate a win or at least be in the mix on sunday capability. Yeah i think. I think it's a very short list but the one that i think is miss price. The most is probably kramer. Hickok seventy seven hundred and he's probably like sixty sixty one or seventy two one depending on where you're looking he is. I was impressed. Not only with the fact that he went eight holes harrison english and a playoff two weeks ago. But that's that could very easily been a draining experience. The fact that even made the cut last week in detroit on of course. That probably doesn't fit him. That well i thought was impressive. So now he goes to a place. That is a much better fit. We know trending in the right direction. We know he's kind of knocking on the door a little bit. I think he's one of the few guys further down the list. That actually has win equity rick one of the things that i do. Is i scan the cheat sheet looking for guys as i get a little bit lower a little bit lower who maybe last year at this time. From a draft kings pricing perspective would have been much higher and We talk about guys and the runs that they go on from a perception standpoint..
Caller Reminds Us That There Is Some Hope in America
"And scared. Love the show I wanted to report about the Good America parade over the fourth Small town. The first four. Float. Idaho First four floats who are the biggest greenest, cleanest John Deere harvesters you've ever seen in your life, followed by three or four big clean fire tracks, all decked out and flags. And then cheerleaders and then the middle school on a flatbed playing on their band. Uh, God bless America, uh, gives you some hope, doesn't it, Cindy? Yeah, it just it did. I just left with the warmest feeling like everything is going to be okay. I hope so. Cindy. Part of us. The heart of us is good. Yeah, I hope so. Well, thanks for your call. I appreciate we needed that producer Mike and Jim were like, Listen, such a dour topic. Take Cindy. Thank you, Cindy. We appreciate the call. I hope she's right, folks. You know, I do. But that was when I opened up the show with
"john deere" Discussed on Recode Decode
"You know to to your point with a tractor and a planter and that tracker implant or taking the prescription that the farmer developed with the the yield data that they took from the previous harvest. And they're using that prescription to apply changes to that field in real time right as they're going through the field with the existing data from the yield map and the data in real time that they're collecting with the tractor to modify things like seating rate and modify things like fertilizer rate and all of those things in order to make sure that they're minimizing the inputs to the operation while at the same time working to maximize the output and that data then is going into the cloud in their referencing. It that track for example that the tractor in the planter took through the field is being used to inform the sprayer when the sprayer goes into the field after emergence in the crops. Come out of the ground. It's being used to inform that sprayer with the optimal path is to drive through the field in order to spray only what needs to be sprayed and no more to damage the crop. The least amount possible all in an effort to to optimize that productivity at the end of year to to make that yield map that is the scorecard a report card at the end of the year for the farmer to make that. Turn out to have a better grade. That's a lot of data who collects. It is a john deere collecting ed. Can i hired a third party sas software company to manage that data for me. How does that part work. Yeah great question. So i would say a a significant amount of that. Data's collected on the fly while the machines are are in the field and its collected the case of deer machines by dear equipment running through the field There are other companies that create the data and they can be imported into things like the deer operation center so that you have the data from whatever source that you wanted to collected. I think the important thing there is this storm. It's been more difficult to get the data off the machine because of connectivity limitations into a database that you can actually do something with it today You know the disproportionate number machines enlarge. Agriculture are connected. They're connected through terrestrial cell networks. They're streaming data bi directionally for to the cloud and back from the cloud and so that data connectivity infrastructure. That's been built out over. The last decade has really enabled two way communication and and has taken sort of the friction out of getting the data off of a mobile piece of equipment And so it's happening seamlessly for that operator. And and that's a benefit because they can act on it then and more near real time as opposed to having to wait for somebody to upload data at some point in the future. Tuesday is the farmers data. John deere's as their terms of service agreement for a combine has certainly turned to service agreement that our positions pretty simple. It's it's the farmer's data. They control it so if they want to share it through an api with somebody that is a trusted adviser from from their perspective. They have the right to do that. if they don't wanna share it they don't have to do that. It is their data to control. Is it portable. I mean when. I say there are computer problems here. I'm like ken. y tractor. Deliver an excel file like. Yeah they certainly can export the data in in form factors that are convenient for them. And they do they'll spreadsheet. Math is still routinely done on the farm they can utilize a spreadsheet to do to do some basic data analytics. If they want. I would tell you though that that what's happening. Is that the amount of data that is being collected in in curated and made available to them to draw insights from is so massive while you can still use spreadsheets to manipulate some of it. It's just not tractable in all cases and so now that's that's why we're building functionality into things like the operation center to help do data analytics and serve up insights growers. It's their data. They can choose to to look at the insights or not but we consider those insights up to them because the data an analysis part of this problem is becoming significantly larger because the data sets are so complex and large. Not to mention the fact that you've got more data coming in all the time. Different sensors are being applied. We can measure different things you know. There's unique pieces of information that are coming in and routinely building to this overall ecosystems of data that they have at their disposal. We've talked a lot about the feedback loop of data with machinery in particular. There's one really important component to this. Which is the seeds are a lot of manufacturers out in the world they want this data the gmo. They can adjust the seeds to different locations. Where do they come into the mix. The data from our perspective is is the. It's the farmer's data right. They're the ones who are controlling the access to it. So if they want to share their data with with someone that they are they have that ability to do it and the and they do today right. they'll they'll share their yield map with whoever their local seed seed salesman is right and and try to optimize the seed variety for the next planting season in the spring and so that data exists. It's not are so we're not at liberty to share it with eight companies and we don't it has to come through the grower because it's their productivity data that they're the ones that have the to share it. We don't have a lot of data. Maybe you can't share it widely but you can aggregate it. You must have a very unique view of climate change right. You must see where the food ways are. Moving or different kinds of crops are succeeding and failing. What is your view of climate change. How what is your perspective on it. Given the amount of data that you're taking it. Yeah it's a great question. The reality is for us that we're sort of hindered answering that question by the recency of the data as we have You know broadscale data acquisition from production. Agriculture is really only a five to ten year old phenomenon. Right and so the data sets are getting richer. They're getting better. We have the opportunity to see trends in that data across the data sets the it exists today. But i think it's too early. I don't think the data's mature enough yet for us to be able to draw any conclusions from a climate change perspective with respect of the data. That we have the other thing that i'll add. Is that the data. Intensity is not universal across the globe. Right so if you think of climate change and global perspective. We've got a lot of data for north america. A fair amount of data that gets taken by growers in in europe A little bit in in south america. But it's not rich enough across the global agricultural footprint for us to be able to make any sort of statements about how climate change is impacting..
Episode 215-2: Leave the Gun, Take the McFlurry - burst 08
"Mcdonalds email to its franchisees. Was basically as you said it said. You're you're voiding. The warranty on the taylor hardware which are basically required to us and you may be exposing your employees to bodily harm. Of course franchisees were would be. I guess free to ignore those warnings. Except for the fact that i think the the implicit message that e mail was that this that we don't want you using these things so you shouldn't use them right. Yeah you know it mentioned so it said that but it also mentions that it also mentioned confidential information in that You know kitsch access all of the systems confidential information and this is why again. I'm going back to your rights repair issues. These are the exact same arguments that you hear time and again from whatever that whether it's medical device whether it's an automobile whether it is a Home appliance the three legs of the stool. Our intellectual property warranty void warranty and physical harm and physical safety. Those are the three just kind of reliable like malaria. Curly of the of the anti repair argument is particularly interesting on this case about the mcdonald's machine because confidential information is is another again. I'm not I'm one of the last people to stand behind Or defense you know companies like apple and samsung but at least they make some effort right like some. Some efforts actually define what confidential information is. I mean if you look at this situation. The mcdonald's ice cream machine. They mentioned confidential information. But are there implies. It's their confidential information when really it's actually the owner of the machines confidential information but they never make that clear and so it's a it's a very interesting Head scratcher in which you like. What is going on with this machine and and the ecosystem lewis makes it while we're at it. Let's dispense with the warranty argument. Magnuson moss the federal warranty acmes. It really clear that you know you you do not void the warranty by having e either servicing it yourself or having an independent service person work on it or anything like that. So the whole you know by attaching to catch device you're voiding. The warranty is clearly not supported by federal law. But you're right. What this reminds me of. Actually a lot is the situation on farms right now with john. Deere and data that dedere equipment is collecting from farms soil moisture data weather data and sell on That deer considers it's proprietary information and in fact resells at a at a hefty profit and yet many people are like well. That's the farmers data. They should have a say into whether that gets collected and resold an and it would seem to be the same really the same question. Whose data is it. It's my franchise. My customers isn't it. My data But but apparently not well especially because it's not defined to and you know mcdonalds. John deere probably unfairly. Certainly in an unbalanced way makes the claim that it's their data. But taylor at mcdonald's in some taylor. Mcdonald's make no effort to actually define that or to try and make that argument. they just. It's very interesting. That taylor is a logo. This like nineteen seventy s or nineteen eighty s era kind of crowd. And it's like. They're they literally think they're king and they can just to create a stuff that oh by the way this void your warranty and guess. What is our confidential data. Like you know what you're not saying. This is america. You can't just decrease often have it happen. What do you think what was the response of the franchisees to that message. I guess from your standpoint as a business owner obviously it was a big blow to your business but did you hear back from them on on the specifics of that hoban who would. What do they mean at saturday dr that it was my data or any kind of questioning of that or is it more like. I don't want to kill the goose that lays the golden egg. And i'm just gonna do what they tell me to do and not ask was both. I think it was both. I mean. there's this is. It's both the same time it's like. Hey part of the system It's the system is doing a lot of things that i don't agree with but at the same time. I'm going to completely Sympathetic to catch. Because again it goes back to the rebellion of franchisees in the first place. Why would they have to you know when you when you kind of have to when you look at the existence and growth of kit which is basically a vaccine you know to to a virus that was created you have to. You can't acknowledge the growth of the vaccine without acknowledging the virus and so this this was obviously a slap in the face to the mcdonalds industrial complex that produces this machine but on one hand it was clearly a necessary vaccine technology that That the franchisees still stand behind they still use on so like use analogies and metaphors and it's kind of like being i never. I never supported the war in afghanistan right. But it's like. I'm still still in america so pay taxes so it's like on one hand you don't support this war effort and you don't support you're going there but it's like you're still part of this system and i as a citizen and very powerless to impact. What goes what goes on in washington support afghanistan. I'm not to pay my taxes. Because i don't want the money you know like i mean you can. You can certainly right. That's right the. Irs franchisees are are very much in the same situation. They're like listen we. This is their afghanistan where they don't
The WiFi Evangelist, Kevin Battistoni of Hunter Industries
"Kevin welcome to the show. Thank you andy. So let's get started kind of typical fashion. I love for you to share. Just how you got started in the irrigation industry. While betsy i had no choice i was kind of born into it. My family got their start in the allegation industry in the chicago. Land area back in nineteen twenty eight with a company by the name of mueller missed irrigation. Great grandfather and grandmother lived in the foothills of ohio. Close to west. Virginia Could make it on the farm so Came to chicago to work for family members in. I wanna say at that point. In time it was probably the forties Just pre world war two and mueller. Mr gatien was Where might it was. Actually i call on them to this day in in their garage that i did a training with their guys two weeks ago. It was subdivided into four parts. And that's where my family actually lived by. My grandfather was an unpaid employees from age. Thirteen to sixteen and Yeah he worked there till nineteen sixty one. Michael bob came to him. In sixty one said dave where starter o'hara gatien company in my grandfather was a licensed plumber Working year round raising four kids. Happy as can be was their number one service guy had all the north shore mansions you know. They love david day. He was the guy and he says bob. You don't even own a piece of equipment. He said that's no problem. I sold the john deere corporate headquarters. We have worked for the next nine months. So i don't know if you've ever seen the footprint of property they installed it in one hundred percent spray heads while now insult like the stories. I mean even run across the old systems. They sweat every ten foot length of copper in andy. There was no such thing as replacing ahead. You brought a file and brought a torch any fig while irrigation system. Probably cost more than now when you think about
The Jobs Numbers: Who's Hiring in America
"Hundred and forty. Five thousand is the number of the day on this thursday. At of course is the number of new applications for state unemployment benefits filed last week astronomically high as i think i've been saying every single thursday for going on a year now. The bureau of labor statistics is going to hit us with the jobs report for the month of february tomorrow. Another snapshot of how this economy is doing as a whole good in parts. Not so good in others. One part of the labor market. That is doing all right. Actually manufacturing marketplace's andy euler going where the jobs are. The john deere engine in tractor museum in waterloo iowa celebrates the history of mechanized agriculture but the museums hosting an event. This weekend. That is very much about the present a job. Fair randy venzke labor relations manager at john deere's waterloo works where they make those big yellow and green tractors the jobs that were currently focusing on our your general assembly. Some well living in some machining jobs. He says the company started its hiring push back in december quickly had over a thousand applicants. And we're able to fill more than two hundred jobs since then you know. The number of applications have really dropped off fact. We've received about hundred hundred ten applications in the past two weeks. He says they're trying to hire about three hundred more people by april problem is there's only about one hundred thirty thousand people in the county in unemployment is currently under four percent across the. Us manufacturing activity is up increasing three year high in february as consumer demand rebounded after the early stages of the pandemic manufacturing's been growing not quite for a year but for the last nine months. David berson is chief economist at nationwide insurance. Because it's been growing has needed workers and they're starting to run out of workers for whom manufacturing jobs or the appropriate physician and jed cocoa chief economist. The job website indeed dot com says. There's a skills mismatch between those hiring. And those seeking employment sectors have laid people off service leisure tourism and the sectors that have done a lot of hiring endemic manufacturing warehouse. Construction do require somewhat different skills and he says those industries that initially lay people off this time last year are starting to hire people back. I may dealer for marketplace a little bit lost in the news. Firehose today was data on fourth quarter worker. Productivity widgets produced for our work to is the very simple formula down four point two percent october through december the biggest drop in forty years. Not great. no but this is a little bit misleading in terms of understanding. What's going on you aren't s. Q is at the university of pennsylvania school of social policy and practice businesses that were not as productive normally just by the nature of the activity such as restaurants and so on have started reopening. So that drags down the average productivity and today's numbers not entirely unexpected. Well that's happening. There is what we call a regression to the mean. Now why are we telling you. This is amount of zilder is at the conference board. It is a basis for future living standards if productivity rises sustainably. That means that down the line Wages are going to be increasing on a more steady stable basis and so from the history matters filed this bit of context. Productivity growth was really sluggish after the great recession wage growth back then also super sluggish as well
Farming Simulator is getting its own e-sports league
"Simulator lead keeps on rambling with three new sponsors for its third season. I'm a dreams and this is the Esports minute presented by E Sports Network. Yeah. You heard me right? It's the Farming Simulator league and it's exactly what it sounds like now entering its third season than Farming Simulator league is an actual a sport they compete at events like farmcon and agritechnica with a total price pulled over $250,000 for the third season of The League the FSM as it's known to fans of digital Farm speed running has welcomed three new sponsors and they aren't just some run-of-the-mill Brad's the developer. The game Giants software has welcomed on Intel Core Teva agriscience and not know until I imagine doesn't need an explanation. I think most gamers are probably familiar with the company Court Ava agriscience is an Agriculture and see company on the atrato is a provider of servers for Gamers Club. The best part is these are the overall event sponsors the actual teams all have their own sponsors as well including a bunch of leading agriculture and farming Brands John Deere Lindner and chrome return this year alongside defending Champions Trio board Wheel Systems. That's the name of the team. The team is called trelleborg Wheel Systems. They also welcomed on new Ross. I can't it's got some money. I'm trying not to laugh. This is legitimate. He's sport new rosters represented by voltra Manitou and Rudolph hormon. We'll all make their debuts in season three besides just being a funny part of these Sports industry. I think the FSL really highlights a key lesson four Brands, even if you don't think your brand or company fits neatly into the Esports and gaming worlds. There is always a way to build me a connection with the gaming audience. You just need to know where to look for partners. If more simulator base League start taking off. This could be a way to bring in a wide variety of brands in air travel Trucking down more if they want to connect with the Esports and gaming world.

Martin Marietta and Han thanks so much for joining me today Audie. Thanks for having me Diane I'm looking forward to our conversation today. I am as well and we're GONNA be talking about culture in in business you know the impact that it has in. Most likely. Spending some significant amount of time talking about the current situation we were in an I had said in the introduction These episodes are evergreen and they are I think no matter when people listen to them. They're gonNA valuable information and We are recording this. I would love to say like toward the end but I'm not quite sure where we are with the whole covid nineteen pandemic and. So while there are things that leaders are going through and employees are going through therefore, companies right now I'm pretty confident that we're going to be talking about. Translates. No matter what the environment is that company finds itself. Absolutely Yep. Okay. So to start if we could. With you providing us with. A description of. Talking about the impact of organizational culture on business performance. The idea that comes to mind there is is a recent discovery of my own and I'll. I'll frame it in this language often I find. Organizations. Are Struggling with their lean or operational excellence deployments and there's a statistic that gets kicked around quite often that seventy to ninety percent of operational excellence. ORLEAN deployments end up in failure. and. My initial response to that was well, they're doing it incorrectly I need to understand why they're doing it incorrectly but I think, I've I've actually adjusted that language to not incorrectly but incompletely in, there's the connection to your question. And for me, the connection is we can do process improvement very well. But. If the rest of the organization is disconnected, the sponsors of the leadership level or the management level of process owners, then we can't sustain or continue to find ways to improve those processes in it seemed like we just continue to solve the same problems over and over again. That is so interesting. Okay. So, if I inherit you right. company decided they want to go through process improvement some area of the business, but they don't necessarily have. Complete buy in from everyone involved. So they go through the process and then everyone walks away. They go back to the way things were. Yes. Okay. So that feels to me like. The in has to start at the very top and then has to be pushed down is that A fair assessment. I would say, yes, there's there's one word though that mutiny short that is pushed because. When those sponsors and it's language that I use to refer to leaders when when leaders actually show up? and. They're clear what their organizations about what's important It's easy for organizations to align to that and questions that I ask often is how many of you came to work today to fail And no one answers the question. Yes. So I always say, well, if that's true of us, don't you think that's true of everyone in our organization we fail them by not being clear about talking about what's important.

"john deere" Discussed on Fore Play
"Say, that again. So you're on a par five and you drill you. Drive in your next shot. You three would in your hand and you know it's to run out. You put one all the way out there, but you can't see it because there's a huge dip in the fairway, but you're walking up there being like all that ball, end up. You know it's either in the bunker or it's just outside on the lip, but if it's out on a limb, you have to now chip over that bunker. Kinda to get it onto the green. You gotta deal with all that Shit as you're walking up to that ball. Are you rooting for it to be out or in like now? Mentally saying. I'm rooting out. Out. I'm. Pillai Golden I'm just so unpredictable out of a bunker. It can take me one shot or can take me five, and it will use the other way I know. I sort of know what I'm getting myself into bunker shots and that's it's really just to me personally because I'm so bad in them that like it's I want to be out of every single. Hills I would say I have yeah. I have a A bigger miss from the bunker like because it's a big hard swing. That I have missed where I'd catch him lady, a decent amount of time, and that ball is fucking God later, so I feel like I. Don't do that as often from the from the fairway so I would rather be in the fairway. The bulk do that makes more sense. I like big hard song I hit. My driver is better and then adding. Adding a bunker able to take this you track, and aren't the worry about the delicate -ness of my dainty risk at somehow become the strong hulk like hands when I haven't legend my hand, it's the craziest thing only time I've become aggressive and mean and bad when I have a fucking little wed demand by the way I'll close it on this. I got a tip today. That could be like life changing with a wedge. It's hard to explain because I. Don't have a club with me right now, but basically I played with this guy. Phil Rockville links.

It's just it's a breakfast like we do. Breakfast Pizza temporaries to I like it's like pizza. It's like you got some eggs on it. You've got the cheese and got that bake man. That Bacon is something. That bank was controversial when. The review when we did the college football show, it's not to bake in. It's the perfect amount of bacon. Cheese eggs. It's so good, I mean I consider pizza because that's what is Dave. Took Your Dad's breath away right to bake any introduce. It stopped him in his tracks is the first time my parents had ever met my boss day. Porno I've been working for the company for four years, but obviously he would never be an island. They'd never been in New York City of Boston and yeah I introduced them and they. They met, and it was all nice and the review. It already come out as my dad was leaving the room where they had met. He just SORTA under his breath said I. Don't know how how something can have too much vacant it just it completely took my dad's breath away. He's a mid west man. He's never. You can see a large pile of Bacon and he would never be like s too much. So for someone to say something on too much bacon was something he just couldn't understand. Grant. You want to we. We left pioneers together and we. What nine hour triple. We made a pit stop in Washington DC..
"john deere" Discussed on Fore Play
"Barstool classic. Classic Dot Com got all the updates. All the updated literal dates on. You know when we're going to be playing. which event a few of them have had to move. Hopefully, you don't have to move anymore, but we made pending on restrictions, and when people were kind of allowed to go, do certain things so art. That's housekeeping. I think we've gotten through it Trent. Are you ready to discuss the fact that the John Deere Classic is so unimportant now a just canceled it. No I you know, I've been thinking a lot about this obviously since the news broke. The John Deere Classic has been canceled. The reason is because by the time when it was supposed to be which was mid-july. Illinois is still expected to be limited gatherings to fifty people are less see candle the golf tournament those type of restrictions, so they cancelled it. It's devastating. Honestly because you know we talk about that termine all the time on this show I talk about it in a positive light. You guys talk about it in a very immature negative way, but this was well this. Mischaracterization, not a mix every. Virginia you guys get to Sucker Punch me and the John Deere Classic. You guys take every opportunity even when I don't see it coming. We talking about some random thing with random guests, and you guys will just take a jab at me of the John Deere Classic. It sucks man because like we've mentioned on I have mentioned on this show before that like. This was the year that we were maybe. Maybe going to get a top fifty player, we were maybe because all the other years were were the week before the open championship. Guys skip it because they want to already be across the pond, getting their practice rounds in, and you know unfortunately this year with the gold pandemic. It made it so there was going to be an opportunity for top fifty players to be there, and it just gets cancel. It Sucks I. Don't know what to say other than it sucks. Daddy. We had a bet that will will that the number? One or two players play in the John Deere Classic? Over under I think the over was one and a half, or maybe even a half. Top Five or top ten player would be there I don't think that should be honored at this point because the whole bucket tournament got. Just and just wanted to know your take on I also. I, also room in that Tiger Woods is going to play at the John Deere Classic. Was a room and that was going to happen and. Know you know now but like. Stay in a fucking barn and playing a golf tournament. There's no chance he's going to the John Deere Classic Somebody. Get Trent his Baba an apple sauce, because you're crying all over the PODCAST. Okay, it's twenty twenty. You're thirty fucking years old. Stop crying all right like this is what I'm going to tell you right now. Get Your fucking face. You're. Listening to me. Listen to me if a tree falls in the woods, and no one's there to hear, it doesn't actually puck and fall. Does it make a noise like honestly no one knows if like no one cares if if this thing gets Cantacuzino was watching. It was playing in it, so they're just cancelling something. That is just like a little blip on my calendar. I don't give off Walkabout John Deere Classic. Do you think that's news? We're about to talk to Craig about the US Open all right Bro-. That's a tournament. We're talking about the masters. We're talking about the players. The.
Time To Reinvent Your Life?
"How are Ya how awesome is weekend? It was a lot around here. I live in new SMYRNA Beach Cherry here in Florida outside of Daytona. And over the weekend. They lifted a lot of the stay at home. Motorola restaurants stores started open. I gotTa tell you also from the beaches and it was really odd to see all these people in bathing suits and boats and stuff and headed to the beach. It's it's been so long this kind of an odd feeling actually. Don't even know what to think about it right now. Just don't know configured out though it is what it is right. Also the daily boost from motivation to move dot com every single day. No matter what you gotta figure out stuff certainly happens to make you work at it. You have dreams ambitions desires things you WanNa do things you wanna get on track or back on track with it but at the end yeah life gets in the way and we have to deal with it. There's one thing I know for sure. Life will always get in the way. They're always challenges. They always have to be managed in some kind of strange way we have to. Sometimes her head screwed on straight. You know something that I learned in the past couple of weeks and I would have been talking to it just a ton of people and this is one of the biggest lessons I picked up on everybody. Everybody has a different perspective of what's happening right now. Everybody depending on what job there in. What part of the country they live in some people are are not working at all. Some people are working endless hours. Some people are still getting paid. Exactly what they got before but they're working eighty hours a week and have no time to do anything that will frustrated. Some people just want to get back to work in the can't everybody's in a different spot and yes a lot of people affected by this virus. A lot of people have been lost in this virus so I've really gotten perspective of that just by talking to people all over the world about how were all writing this same storm. Many many different boats together and so people in small boats and some enlarge votes. It's crazy but hopefully God willing. It will settle here soon. My name is Scott Smith the founder and the chief motivating officer here at motivation. Move Dot Com. I'm sure happy you're here today. There are tons of places you could be. This is going to good place because we're talking about a little reinvention today. A favorite topic of mine and something has been a lot of time helping a lot of folks do. There is no better time than right now to reinvent yourself maybe a little better or a little different as we move forward and help you do that. I want to invite you to become a member at motivation who've dot com where we have the daily news premium version of this show which comes out Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday and the operation reinvention to you on Saturday all commercial. Free no promotions. Nothing is just pure coaching every single day. Plus the operation reinvention coaching call. Were doing zoom calls at spent a lot of fun to chat with people all over the world the Fisher Passion Program David Nugget. Email the daily text message so much energetically put together basically to do one thing. Help you stand up. Take a step and repeat every single day no matter what gets in the way. I've cut the price during this pandemic is going on. We dropped fifty percent down to nine ninety five contracts. You can cancel anytime. Never had a price this low before so if you join us just go to motivation who've dot com get started today so here we are. It is Monday and that means I was thinking about things I want to do in my life now this weekend you. I'm always talking about exploring the possibility well. I got to explore the possibility this weekend. A friend of ours owns and I'll pack a wrench to and as you said. Hey can you bring your tractor over and help me move some dirt around and you have to put some dirt and some stalls can yell at thought out and get detractors. I've got trigger and I I took my track over there. John Deere and I spent the entire day helping her. But you know what I learned. I explored the possibility of doing dirt work in a neat cool tractor all day long and I. I realized I wasn't going to be something I ever aspired to do. As a living not nothing wrong with it but it wasn't going to happen so I knew my homework. I'M GONNA look at my world and say what do I like about my world? What I don't like about my world and okay do I like to attract or work for my neighbor. Well sort of venue. She asked again. I would help but would I try to avoid it. Heck Yeah it's not really my list right now and that's all we have to do with homework. That's it. We look into our life the things that were doing the things we'd like to do things that we don't like to do things you wanna say yes to things. We want to say no to decide how we're GONNA handle it in the future when you do that when you assess how your life is going to be and you just a few minutes every single day. I like it every single day. You want so if you want to. You'd be surprised what happens if you don't do that. You'll be surprised. Ten Years Fly Pie. And You wonder how you got there. See it every day. So do your homework. If you need help remember get the perfect planner. It's in the resource section of motivation. And WE'VE DOT COM easy to find. They're just click on that and download it and watch the video. It'll explain to you how to how to hold time for yourself. Maybe you got some extra time right now you can use it so let's talk about reinventing. Costano a pretty good time right now. I mean the past month has created a nothing short of a massive disruption in our lives. No doubt about that. So why not take advantage of this journey back to normal and maybe switch things up now? This is a nonstop never ending specialty and expertise. I have done this for a lot of years really being able to go come where I am and just become something different when I want to and helping so many people do it so I have a lot of experience in this world and it's a great chance to do it in fact it's been said you've heard the phrase before never let a crisis go to waste. We got one right now right. There's a disruption right now and when something has been disrupted you have a chance to wiggle and move and shake and bake and do everything you WanNa do. Make a few changes so when he wanted some tweaks as we move ourselves back to what is going to be normal here in the future or you WANNA total reinvention. The process is very much the same use the same steps. No matter what you WANNA do. Little suffer big stuff ready number one and this is a big deal and it's usually the one that people have already done but don't realize they've done it. You must acknowledge that something needs to change. Doesn't sound like a whole lot but you'd be surprised. Lots of people are trying to fix all kinds of things and not recognize as underlying change. It has to happen so when you recognize. There is something that needs changing. Listen to your gut into crisis. We're in right now. Lives are disrupted and you're thinking wait a second. How did I get here? How did this happen? Whether it's my fault. Non My fall how could I have avoided this? How could I made it easier and that gut feeling might be telling you make a few changes so if and when it happens again you're in a different spot number to be honest your inner thoughts and your feelings are real. We ARE EMOTIONAL BEINGS. And so that's where it's GonNa come from now. We have to transfer that into logic right but they are telling you the truth. They're telling you something has to change so listen to what's in there really reading yourself. An honor what. You're feeling. Translate that into actions. You'll see what happens. So first acknowledging ing that we really need to make a change in order to get the the impact that we want and to be honest with these feelings are yours. A lot of folks will say yea. I don't know it's kind of running around my head. Coaching and work with people one of the biggest things I do is validate that feeling. Validate that thought. I tested and validated. To make sure it's real and often in the process they go out the way you said it back to me. I can see that. It's this right so honored that clearly understand why you want to reinvent something you gotTa know this now. The wise always a very powerful thing but when you understand exactly why you WANNA make some changes and really feel it. It's GonNa get you excited. And that is a power that will move you forward through the journey. You're about ready to take. We should ask yourself a favor question. I think I got this the book the One thing. What one thing can you do or not? Do that will have the most significant impact on your life. It's an extremely powerful question. You're trying to make a reinvention of yourself because if you're trying to move in a certain direction there is something you can do. It may be changing jobs and maybe starting a business may be quitting the job. Who knows what is going to be. I don't know your situation right now but there's got to be one thing maybe it's moving. Maybe it's paying off some bills. I don't know what it's going to be. But there is one thing you can do that or not do. That's going to have a huge impact and immediate instantaneous. Impact on your life. Don't be afraid of that. Go find it. Why take your time looking forward and dabbling around when you just think about it a little bit and figure out what to do? I want you to set a sprint goal. I thought about this when I wrote this down. I typically will say a ninety day goal so the at least ninety days I went to sprint toward at your focus goes in that direction. You WanNa make the change now. Ninety days is something anybody can do but I will recognize ninety days. It's a longtime particularly in the The upheaval we feel these days. So my first thought was well. Let'S CUT BACK THIRTY S. Push everybody for thirty days and do that and I like thirty days. Anybody can do thirty days so I'm going to give you a little bit of leeway here I want you to sprint for at least thirty but a fixture think three months if you can hold on for thirty days and then go ninety you will change. Your Life. I promise you a lot faster than you think it won't be the all-time

Harvesting tech shows up down on the farm as Brexit labor shortage looms
"As it turns is out that all jobs where a human touch is or has been irreplaceable fruit and Berry picking is a good example. Soft delicate fruits must be assessed zest for ripeness and then gently plucked without smashing them in a vice like grip but in Britain one looming effect of Brexit is a shortage of cheap human when labor and that spawned a new flurry of interest in robots. That can do the job. So you see that it's Reaching the stem and now the gripper cutter will cut the stem and grip the Strawberry Visha Mohana University of Essex Marketplace's. This is London bureau. Chief Stephen Bid went to see his robot in action. This is definitely very difficult. Territory for robotics These aren't repetitive. Movements in a highly structured environment as you would get in a car plant. The environment with fruit-growing is very unstructured. The robots gotta find the the fruit through a massive leaves so it needs stereoscopic cameras. David Three D. Image. It assesses the rightness of the fruit by measuring its wavelengths on the visible spectrum. It needs to deal with fruit of different shapes and sizes and machine learning going on here so it is pretty difficult to these robots. What's move with any sort of speed. I'm kind of imagining them. Shooting up and down these rows of fruit arms flinging grabbing berries filling baskets. Well they can do with that but They wouldn't be very effective they. They cannot pick as well as humans yet. They're getting there But they're they're picking more slowly than humans but they can work much longer so lacking speed they make up foreign stamina an average human raspberry picker picker can collect fifteen thousand berries in an eight hour day. The robot can harvest twenty five thousand in a twenty hour day so so slower but hard working robots also can pick at night which is not so easy for humans and that's better for the fruit because they they've been picked at low temperatures. Have they could be chilled more easily. How does the cost of these machines. Workout I'm guessing. They're expensive to buy but do they. Balance Out over their lifetime. Well this probably is the the major stumbling block in the path of this technology the Belgian company Tinian which is probably the most advanced of the European robot developers won't say exactly how much they cost which is never a good sign. They say the cost is comparable with the cost of human Picking but I've heard a lot of suggestions that One of these robots could cost as much as a hundred and thirty thousand dollars. It'd be very hefty price to pay. What Tinian says is that. They offer a complete package. They offer to rent out the equipment but one fruit grow that I spoke to said that he didn't expect Robots to become widespread in the UK or Europe until now the decade at least Stephen Beard in the UK on the robots revolutionizing farming now for some related links automation in farming doesn't just have to mean robots. Robot's there are other ways that tech continues to infiltrate agri-business here in the US. Drones can help with monitoring crops checking for hydration levels so that watering schedules can be adjusted dynamically. They can spray pesticides and autonomous tractors and harvesters could do the monotonous back and forth driving over miles of fields old. Forbes looks into this in detail and says that it's bringing the high-tech west coast and the rural rust belt together as farming tools become increasingly software independence. That old question of who actually owns them is cropping up again. Farmers have started hacking. Their tractors manufacturers like John. Deere basically lock them down around to stop what they would call an authorized repair work. The farmers the vice interview say when something breaks down. They can't get to a dealer and they don't necessarily want to pay for that. I'm Jackie Stewart. And that's marketplace tech.

"This isn't me speaking as a representative John Deere but just the someone who's kind of in the agriculture equipment whirled and I'm looking out and I go to farm shows and over the next ten to twenty years the way I I see things personally going as it's GonNa get Moreton Imas and it's going to get smaller and you know we've got to the point where the equipment is huge and the real challenges that we need to you know we're going to have even more people on this planet and we need we need to be able to feed them and that's not necessarily gonNA mean that we need to just like Jack up the output of Iowa and Illinois as far as corn soybeans. Go you know we need that too but we really need the rest of the world to be able to to me. That output countries need to be able to feed their their own people. They can't all be dependent upon Iowa. Output massive amounts of corn right and and some of the big equipment doesn't necessarily make sense in the smaller countries with a whole variety of different topography and everything and also. Oh from our standpoint. You know having a single piece of equipment is for a farmer you know. That's a single point of failure and just like we WANNA break up our monoliths. It makes sense for that equipment to get smaller. And if it's a Thomas and it's robots they could get quite small. I know personally of at least breath. Ford different companies within Iowa little startups included running out people's Barnes where people people are trying to make like dog or horse size robots for farm equipment. You know to go out and do planting or harvesting being or or spraying you know and we're working on on similar things. We we have a company out of called Blue Blue River out of Sunnyvale. Where we're doing machine? She in learning sprang. So you know we're having it and be able to go through the field and book you know right now. It's hold behind a tractor but it can look at that look at the plants and say. Hey that's a that's a weed spray that that's a corn plant. Don't spray that and it's going to get more you know we're hoping we can reduce eventually herbicide use by like ninety percent and it's just GonNa get more intelligent and more autonomous and that's gonNA mean smaller pieces of equipment. That are kinda running around so I I think that's a really cool is just like look out and would love to see just a bunch of dog size robots going around picking weeds. It's very very very science fiction to me. Essentially doing what people used to really plausible right. You know we used to just have kids walking through the fields picking weeds needs. That's how you did weeding. Send the kids out to walk the beans. Why can't robot do that? All right. Ryan Bergman thanks for coming on the show. It's been great talking thanks. You probably.

"I can do all the testing that I need to do on my laptop basically or some combination of the laptop and remote cloud resources but you are testing software that needs to be deployed to a tractor or software that needs to be on the cloud but supporting attractor in the field. So I imagine you can do some of the testing that you need to do with simulation Russian. I'm sure there are some kinds of systems. That are isolated enough that you don't really necessarily have to do lots of Unit testing testing all the time in in hardware in a real world capacity. But I do imagine. The overall workflow needs to account for the kinds of integration and real world software hardware interface challenges that are potentially going to occur once that software is out in the real world. Tell me more about the testing and development pipeline and how you minimize the amount of errors that are going to make it out into the real world sure so we have kind of all range of different applications so we do have applications that are really just purely a web application and and really only deal with state and things that are within our direct control and could be tested in a normal way you know with normal developer. Td kind of kind of environments lot of the stuff in my area kind of falls into that you know we do mobile APP development. It's kind of similar. You know you can walk out. API requests and as far as the stuff that goes on women. That's where it gets a lot more complicated so when I first came to dear the first project that I worked on is called remote display access so this allows anyone from a computer anywhere to be able to remote into the display. So it's basically doing you know good old. DNC technology that's been around since the eighties but we're doing it to a tractor over cellular connection that might be out in the middle of nowhere and that allows that's really valuable for like especially the dealers and the other people who were helping the farmer configure their equipment and they can because they can and you know if they have to do a service call and drive a truck out sometimes you know it could be in West Texas. It could be an hour and a half two hour drive before Um some some tech from the dealership gets to the farmer and if they can just VNC into the display and they can say oh yeah just click here click here change that to a two. Now you're good so that's like the whole thing right impacts on the equipment it impacts the web and does it's really difficult uh-huh to test kind of all the way into end really well at least at least it's not fast rate. But we mitigate that in a couple in different ways one. We have kind of small-scale equipment. Simulators can plug into this blaze to kind of walk around or office. You'll see people have a display. Blame the steering wheel just like strapped onto the side of it and you can do a little bit of simulation they are. At least you can interact with the display for most of the things we were talking about out simulating things like censor income sensors coming in or we WANNA do more advanced stuff with the entire cab. We have entire simulators. Here's where we basically have. We have lab and we have the cabs of the equipment because the cavs are fairly interchangeable. It's basically the same cab that goes the same command center if you will. That goes on a combine. That goes on a tractor that goes on spare and so we have these and they're hooked up to what are essentially look like gigantic Nintendo entertainment system cartridges. That are about like I don't know they're bigger. They're like the size of a dresser right and they contain within them all of the electronic equipment for that particular piece of equipment so for combine for example. They'd have all the sensors answers and an electronic equipment and they're not as wide as address. But you pretty thin look like cartridge and then we have like a boss that Kinda travels below them so rather than you take in the cartridge and plugging it into it. The plug kind of moves around the bottom and you decide which one you want to look it up. Doing it hooks up to that and so that allows a lot more advanced simulations and we'll run like on the display builds off and run it through a whole host of different automated test plus with the actual hardware and then when our ultimate thing is we we have an entire test farm. It's about I don't know fifteen twenty miles us out from our office and it's it's pretty nice because you know if you happen to be working on something that impacts the tractor and it's a really nice day and sprang the fall or something. They could be like. Oh I think I need to test it out of the out of the farm and we have all the equipment. We have a cotton picker there. It's the only place you'll see a cotton picker driving around Iowa and you can go out there and we can. We can run the builds on actual equipment. It's pretty Nice facility. That's cool quick check on autonomy so the idea of self driving tractor or self-driving arriving cotton picker is. That's a reality today or stan is. We've been doing for years. It'll drive up and down on the you know. Originally the first version was that was that it would just it would stay on an exact line and say you know you can imagine with like rows of corn could align itself right up with the with those rows that new planted so he knew he planned to these corns at these corn rows these GPS coordinates and so we have a line line there and the equipment can align itself up with that row and it can drive down and the first version of it. You had to turn it around. But now we've got got to the point where essentially the equipment could just go into field and drive back and forth and and do everything we do require that a human being still sit in it It is dangerous equipment and we need that human override in case something would happen. We don't want a combine like going off and hurting someone or or livestock or anything like that so but the equipment is is essentially driving itself at that point and and we're getting more and more advanced with that as we go. The equipment also has the ability to communicate with other pieces of equipment in the field. So say you have a grain contractor come in with a grain cart to offload combine. The tract with green card communicates with the combine the two pieces of equipment. Figure out exactly how that tractor is going to come up to the side of the combine the combine can offload its grain and automatically figure out how to fill up that Ben This is a really stressful thing. If you're to human beings trying to do this right try to drive really really big piece of equipment and have a shoot off to to the side offloading grain and trying not to hit each other is can be really really stressful. And so we've got it so the equipment basically all does all that part itself and they don't have to worry about that and then once the green card filled up the tractor pulls off to a point where the human can safely take back over the the driving of that equipment and it takes it off to wherever it needs to take it a silo or a semi truck or something like that and when you have two machines communicating with each other. Are they routing their traffic through the cloud or can they talk over Bluetooth Dude. There's something they're talking to each other over I. Believe it's a shortwave. Radio shortwave Radio K.. That would make more sense. Let's talk a little bit more about the the software infrastructure side of things so the applications that are running on the tractors themselves are those mostly C.. Plus plus or do you have a a wide variety of application types. That are actually running inside the tractors. It's almost listen tirelessly C.. Plus plus. Yeah especially as you get or just see right. So if we're talking about like an embedded controller on a transmission commission or something like that that's most likely probably just see maybe it's C.. Plus plus it certainly natively bill. The displays are all both are are all C. Plus plus we have looked into. You know augmenting that with not everything -sarily like on the display would need to be C.. Plus plus it is a real time operating system. We really need that like when you click this button that this physical thing happens so we need that aspect to it and so there's performance implications implications and a lot of those. The people we have that are really experienced with this or experienced people's plus developer. So it's kind of a natural language REG NC polls plus honestly isn't as bad as it used to be a few using like sepals plus eleven. I think is the newer version. We have looked at starting to do some more stuff with with like roster go and there's no reason why a lot of the applications on the display couldn't be written in something like python or something like that not not everything on there is you know needs real time critical application and there's like a radio the radio could probably be in whatever right. It's just too many run times and dependencies there sure but I think rust is really the most interesting one of the the A new languages and I. We have several different groups looking very closely at rest because of the memory safety or what. What's the what makes attractive to you? Yeah I mean attracted to me is yeah the memory safety the fact that is this a little bit more modern and I just find it a fascinating being language in general as far as I don't do a lot of that embedded programming myself but if I ever get over into that space more I would definitely want to look at that go. It'd be fine too but you know it's not as hip a new thrust. Is You know. I wonder with with the C.. Plus plus stuff. I wonder if this is going to be like what we have with. COBOL and Fortran where there's now a huge shortage of cobalt fortran developers like C. Plus plus plus isn't that like the plus plus developers. They're all aging out. Like I don't think anybody like millennials do not learning C. Plus Plus No. It's it's hard and what's interesting though is that I think a lot of our developers that are on the a display. There's quite a few. That are just mechanical engineers right. They didn't go into computer science. They went into to become engine. Ears agricultural engineers going to like Iowa state or or University of Illinois Champaign. We have a kind of a lab up there with the intention of of doing real physical engineering well anymore..

"XP methodologies I worked at another place in town that was kind of known around town for the we did a lot of that kind of stuff. We practice pair programming. And we you know did all. Td and that company was bought by another company and it kind of collapsed at that point like all the engineers quit. And I think about fifteen fifteen of US wound up at John Deere one capacity or another and really a lot of things changed around that time. And if you were to come we just moved into a new building which is which is pretty cool. But you know it doesn't look a lot different than you know. A lot of the shops you see and in Silicon Valley Delhi or elsewhere and we still practice a lot a lot of those racks. So we're doing pair programming doing test driven development. We do a lot of you've of testing at a lot of different layers as even really. It's it's so much more important with the kind of stuff that we're doing because it's a lot harder our to get an update if there's a bug that's happens to impact you know displays or something on the equipment. That's a lot more expensive to fix than just something. That's it's in a web APP right and also take into account that our equipment you know. It's it's big it's dangerous. You know it it could hurt you. And and we have to take those kind of considerations into into account and make sure everything's pretty solid before it goes out and gets in the hands of customers. Today's.

"Great to be here. You work at John Deere and we're GONNA discuss a lot about software and hardware and agriculture. I'd like to just start by getting your description for the software and the hardware that runs modern agriculture. Give me an overview of the technology. Sure so there's a large piece of agricultural equipment in the kind of stuff. I work on talking about you. Know really big combines tractors actors with planters sprayers. It's kind of amazing. It's it's really a series of a whole bunch of little computers. A lot of different things you can think of like the tractor is a is a bunch of micro services right and all of the different pieces of hardware often have their own embedded controllers like even down to individuals spray nozzles on sprayer and they all have to work together. They communicate together and make a total system. The sheer a number of computer systems and moving parts on these things is pretty amazing and what are some examples of devices that John Deere builds. It's so I'll kind of lay out where I'm coming from with with this. I'm so I work for John. Deere Intelligence Solutions Group so we are a kind of a division or Business Unit of John. Deere you're that's a little bit independent from say corporate or from a particular factories so generally are what we call it like a platform. It is a particular kind of equipment so harvest works mix combines and they kind of oversee their own thing as far as the combine. It goes on you know. The tractors made in Waterloo and they have their own kind of thing. What intelligent solutions group does is? We build a a lot of the more advanced computer systems. That kind of help tie all these things together. So we make the display that goes on the tractor or any of the equipment there's generally an embedded display. There's also a what we call an empty which is basically glorified rugged is cellphone so all the large equipment comes pre built with a A telematics device like that we oversee the the satellite receivers because all of the equipment is GPS EPS driven. A lot of times equipment will have more than one satellite receiver and then we also have a large network of base stations and farmers can have their own base stations. And so we we we see oversee that too and so all of that is generally those parts of it are like imbedded C. Plus plus kinds of applications nations and those will collect all the data you know they're used for configuring the equipment and then we take all that data and through that telematics device we suck all that data into the cloud and we process it and a lot of the stuff that I personally work on is all that data that's in the cloud and then the farmers can use I used to get reports and maps about their different kinds of operations they can share that data with say an agronomist. They're working with and the agronomists can be able to look at that. That data make prescriptions for spraying or fertilizing and they can send that back and automatically goes back onto the equipment and the equipment can automatically configure itself for those kinds of prescriptions so spraying operation. The agronomist might say hey you need let's do this amount of chemical Michael in this part of the field and this amount of chemical and this other part of the field that goes onto the sprayer spur than knows. I need to spray exactly the smell of chemical in at this piece of land at this amount in this piece of land and you can drive the sprayer and figure eights across the field if you want. It's only ever going to apply exactly what it needs to apply and that way and we can severely reduced the amount of chemical use that's applied because you know farmers don't WanNa overpay consumers don't want their food over sprayed sprayed and that's kind of like the whole circle and then once you get to harvest we take that data we bring that up into the cloud and then we can look at that data that they're They're planting and they're spraying and the harvest and we can see how those different inputs impacted the bushels per acre that they got in a particular field within a particular area of a particular field but the data as far as the yields the crop yields of the end. That's data that the somebody has to put in manually at the android because that's not like something that it is necessarily going to be gathered by the farming equipment. Oh Yeah it is. Yeah I mean it's at the end of the day you're going to get paid for what goes into the elevator. Batur right when you when you go and you way at the elevator but what we know about the sake corn or soybeans or we we to whatever it is. The combine can calculate exactly pretty pretty really close to what you actually have. And we know what they're going to have before they even get to the elevator and we can calculate our sensors that are in those combines and they're looking at the grain ads going through the shoot and we can also and we can use that the data we can calculate the moisture and we even know like you know when you get to an elevator. You'RE GONNA get paid for not only the grain but also is a factor that how does how much how much moisture isn't it because if the elevator has to dry it then you know. There's charges for that because it takes propane gas to or some other other source to dry the grain so we know the moisture content. We know how much grain you've you've got we tell you what you're going to get the elevator before you get there amazing in show. I'm imagining these different kinds of machines that drive around the fields. You've got got combines cotton pickers and all these different gigantic machines that John deere builds in each of these things. There is some data that gets gathered. There's some calculations that take place locally on these big pieces of machinery and then there's some shuttling of data to the cloud is the data gathering and the data sending to the cloud. Is that heavily separated like or can you just stream data to the cloud. Do you have a consistent reliable network connection to be able to send data to the cloud. Well the answer is it depends. Ideally we do we will stream and that's kind of our default behavior is to stream and we we actually stream kind of been in thirty second chunks. You don't necessarily need like a constant stream and we're sampling that data so all of this the planting data and the harvesting data gets you know. We're not transmitting. Say the GPS coordinates of every single seed. We plant although we could do that. That would just be way too much data right and it's not terribly useful so we do a sampling of between one and five Hertz. On all of that data and it gets kind of little batch up and then send Dan and as long as we have a connection where we can do that. And that's not always the case I can drive I live in Des Moines Iowa. I can drive about thirty miles from Des Moines and get you to a place where there's no cell coverage and that's despite the fact that you know you go to. At and T. or verizon or whatever when you look at their map and it looks like we cover all of America right and there's only like one or two little pockets of of nothing and that's not quite right. There's lots of rural America that has really poor coverage or you do get there and it's only like the weakest of edge. It's pretty bad so we generally design all the telematics stuff so it doesn't require a real solid connection like will transmit over to ten cans with some string if we could and if we can't get a connection action it'll just kind of bundle it up and wait and tell the equipment gets to a place where does have a better connection than consented and still even there. You get to specially out West and rural areas where it's just not gonNA happen at all and if that happens the farmer can plug a USB stick into the tractor will Popol of the data off onto that he could take it back to his computer at home and plug it in. And we'll upload it from a from a desktop computer or from their cell L. phone so it's not like an overwhelming amount of data such that the connectivity intermittent connectivity across different on customers is GonNa get bottleneck basically while you're not connected to the Internet and you know you'd have to down sample or have to lose data or you have to do roll ups or something. It's just not not so much data that that happens no not really I say we pretty good job. The format that we send it in. Hannah's pretty compressed. It's nowhere near like watching for K.. On Netflix we're not at that level like once we as far as is the transmitting of it goes now as we expand it. That data gets pretty big. And we've got. I think last time I checked like twenty five pedal bites of total economic data which is not tiny still. Know if I'd call big data though. I think we're still only a moderately early sized pond right like in the scheme right right compared to what other some other people are dealing with. So what can you expect out of the equipment. Operators in terms of technical expertise do they need to have significant understanding of anything related to software engineering twelve. You Know No. And there's a real shortage of farm farm labor in rural America. You know they don't. There's it's just part of the reason why John Deere and other people in agriculture have been working more and more towards autonomous vehicles and automating. All of this is that there's just not a lot of people out there do this labor and the expertise of the People Bluer. They're no we can't count on them. Having any kind of computer science degree our mantra is someone should be able to just jump in the cab turn turn the key and go and the equipment's going to figure out everything that it needs to do now. There's probably going to be someone who's knows a lot about Not necessarily computers. I don't even know about that but just how to configure some of this equipment because it is complicated and particularly if you're configuring it to be able to do the self driving operations you know you gotta get all of the everything Kinda configured the right way with the satellite receivers fevers and a lot of people rely on their dealers to help them do that. And we do. A lot to to help enable those dealers and other service providers to Being able to to help the farmers in doing that whether it's being able to send alerts about oil pressure to the dealers or or other things so that they can let a farmer know that he's going to have a problem with a piece of equipment and they should get it fixed earlier or if it's like I was striving before with the agronomists and the being able to do those advanced economic operations and be able to configure sprayers for what they need to do. You have been with at the company for more than eight years and the period of the last eight years I would say is this idea of quote unquote unquote digital. Transformation has really built a lot of steam. Now there's a lot of countries they've been digitally transforming for a longer period than eight years but certainly over the last eight years. The cloud has really caught on as a software development paradigm. And so. You've seen engineering. I'm sure change change at a pretty rapid pace because the cloud has been such a transformative set of technologies as well as like open source has been so much happening in open source of the last eight years. Here's how his engineering within John Deere changed over that eight year period. That you've been with the company right. It goes back further further than that from when I joined about a little over eight years ago. I asked you started. I think around two thousand and really it started off with the the with the satellite. That's the intelligent systems group into. Yeah the Intelligence Solutions Group. Yeah so that's really started around two thousand with with this the satellite navigation and and the automatic steering the original like I version of those things we literally like mechanically ACLU turn the steering wheel. You could retrofit till like older pieces of equipment to which is pretty fine when I joined John Deere. IS S. G was undergoing change at that time where they were kind of moving to more agile..

"Robotics has changed. Modern Agriculture Autonomous Systems. are powering the tractors cotton pickers and corn cutters that yield plants at industrial scale. Gail John Deere is a company that has been making farm equipment for one hundred and eighty three years over that period the planting and harvesting process has become increasingly increasingly mechanized and John Deere has been at the forefront over the last few decades software has played an increasingly important role at John Deere today. There is software inside the vehicles. The tractors the cotton picking machines and these vehicles can operate autonomously. They collect large amounts of data and they're supported by a large system of cloud services the teams within John Deere who create the software. have an elaborate testing workflow. It allows them to deploy the software to the vehicles and drive them in the field. Ryan Bergman is a software engineer at John Deere and he joins the show to talk about the software engineering hiring management and devops practices within the company I love software architecture.

"Face this is the tech companies those lines of law we are in a hybrid ecosystem where bits pixels are intermingling with the atoms. Right arm the company transitioning into a data company and not as the evolution. We are on so I'm curious and I'm not asking this from a I want the inside Scuba John Deere necessarily but from your role being in a farming industry and looking at technology trends of twenty thirty. What are some of the biggest challenges challenges you have in your role helping to get? There was a great question. And you got me thinking this and while the it's not as much as a challenge it's more about this guy. I have a favorite thing that I keep thinking. Good is the enemy of great Because you're already in a good place are you going to really push yourself to achieve greatness because that comes with with a with a level of risk right and also we are very. We're in a good position from a as a hardline company and we are making a transformation so so that is again uncomfortable so the new world that we're in is disrupt or be disrupted a try and so get comfortable comfortable being uncomfortable right so that all and not as that's a cultural thing that we have to kind of embrace company going forward but what I would like to say is do Duhr is not a stranger. Transformation eighteen thirty seven. We innovated as a company. This was the beginning of John. Deere with south scarring block that was the original innovation right fast. Forward a short eighty one years and we decided to go check out this internal combustion vestige and engine fat that was happening in one thousand nine hundred nine and decided to make start making machines because you know our legacies doing animal move. You know pulled implements. Let's get that and go make these tractor things right so we did that. Big Bet. Big Risk Transform The AG industry transformed Dior. And we've never been the same fast forward. Another short eighty-one years we acquired the NAF COM satellite positioning the company in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine and that is the underpinnings for everything that we're doing today. It's the precision that we needed to drive that auto auto truck yield mapping to do the variable rate application. All data required that salvage level accuracy. That was satellite corrected right eight and now we know waiting on years. Eighteen years later twenty seventeen the acquisition of Blue River and now we're on boarding artificial intelligence onto our equipment. That's why say the future is limitless. Transformation is an odd. Yeah no that is considering what companies last like even a great company. You're seeing like fortune. Five hundred's will be gone ten to twenty years you've seen that I ain't giants giants. Topples can get comfortable sitting on your laurels. No no no no. I think that is a perfect finish.

"Welcome to episode to seventeen with Ed. A Guy I really like and been a big fan of yours. Jody gooding here. Yeah good to see all thank you you as well you know I was looking. I know most of the stuff about you like I've been a fan before we've been able to be friends. I was just a massive Asif Fan of you growing up and so as I kind of one of the deep dive. 'cause I always like to find out. What do I not know about people coming over to the house? Right listen to this. I don't know if even knew that. Go on this day. December Sixteenth Nineteen Ninety Four. You had the number one song on the Billboard Country Charles Pickup Man. It was your longest lasting number one having spent four weeks at number one from December ninety four to January ninety five. Did you know that was today. No I didn't notice today. I knew the the rest of that. I didn't realize the data. That's pretty cool on this day. Number war yeah so for example Luke. Combs just spent three weeks at number one And that's a long the last three weeks number one especially today really big deal when you have a song this one for four weeks in in Nineteen ninety-four. What's the vibe that well I mean? It was unusual because back then you know they put out a lot more songs that the frequency of you put forth four four or five times a year and now you might have one son stays on the charts. Lingering there at some point For almost a year you know so So that was kind of weird weird part. We had to wait to see what how long it was going to stay number one before we could put another record. So did you feel like that song was going to be a number one song. I knew it from the institute after I heard it really I really do. Yeah I don't know why just something about it just you know. Have you been able to name and nail boasted most of your big songs for the first time you heard them. Yeah pretty much There was a couple that it didn't Like John Deere Green. I hated one. I heard it real. Why why well because the demo now this is a long saga but it but when I first heard it it was done by the rider writer named Dennis Linde and he had a very eclectic sound voice and he did all his own demos at his house so it had a Jew's harp planning ardine are Ernie Ernie and I was like what the heck is that you know in my producer so we'll just ignore the demo part I I'd have to add right now? That is subsequently Loved all Denison. Lindy's demos they were so cool after he got kind of figured out what was what was happening. You know my producer said listen to the words and and and I was like man. I just don't like it at all. He goes. Well I think this hit and I said well we can try you know go in the studio cut it and if it doesn't work out then we scrap grab you know so. Luckily it worked
GDP data; business investment stabilizing
"So we are going to spend a couple of minutes at the top half of the program on a slice of that. GDP data something called business investment a key although lacking of late part of what makes this economy go. Marketplace Justin Ho starts US off business investment has been shrinking for the last two quarters but last quarter decline wasn't a steep is expected. Sarah Watt House is an economist at Wells Fargo Securities. We're not seeing it fall off a cliff. Fanny means companies are still spending. But they've certainly illustrated some hesitancy in recent months. Hell says the trade war is making companies less willing to spend on expensive new factories which take years to complete today. John Deere reported at the trade wars made farmers cautious about making major investments in new equipment. Instead how says businesses are spending more on intangible items which aren't as vulnerable bolt economic cycles. So things like software research and development to help companies come up with that next big product or or idea so that's accounting for increasing share of business investment companies did spend more uncertain tangible items overall spending on equipment fell but within that spending on industrial equipment went up so depending on the buildings that House that equipment George Perks Global Macro Strategist for spoke investment group both much firmer than you expect back. Based on manufacturing industry survey that's relatively hopeful fine still businesses spent less on new commercial buildings less on transportation equipment less on new hospitals. It's a trend that reflects a broader shift in the US economy says Alex Casino at Manulife Investment Management Manufacturing has become increasingly less important as a percentage of GDP DP. I'm the services sector which is supported by software house become increasingly important while today's GDP data found that business investment is shrinking. The same report said spending ending on services is growing in New York. I'm Justin how for marketplace.
Feeling the trade war on the farm
"First up today the latest on the US trade trade deficit that is of course the measure of whether we imported more than we export it. Well from September to October that deficit shrunk by about four and a half percent percent. That sounds great. But unfortunately it's because imports and exports both dropped. It's just that imports fell more. In other words there there was less economic activity like manufacturing and retail for the US economy overall and. That's not so great marketplace's Mitchell Hartman takes a closer look. US I agree cultural. Exports fell hard in September as retaliatory tariffs especially from Asian countries. Hit hard take apples. Ninety five percent of of US exports come from Washington. State says Jim Bear at the. US Apple Association. The Chinese New Year is everything so for example. If I was coming to visit you I would bring you this perfect apple from the United States as a gesture of good health and prosperity for the coming year bear says in China and India they love. US US grown red delicious and the last few years sales soared until the US slapped tariffs on Indian Chinese imports and they retaliated with sixty sixty to seventy percent tariffs on US apples. We are going to have our ninth largest crop in history but at the same time exports are down about one third third close to two hundred million dollars which frankly is a lot for the apple. growers another link in the supply chain is agricultural equipment and other big rigs tractors actors earthmovers and the like me by classic American Manufacturers Caterpillar and John Deere their export sales to foreign customers are falling says Elizabeth vermillion at CF IRA research. Now you have tariffs and trade and slowing global math nommik headwind plus. US farmers farmers are so uncertain about the trade future will China by their soybeans will India by their apples that they're holding back on buying new farm equipment for next year ear. I Mitchell Hartman. For marketplace.
Apple places $7 billion in return to bond market
"US bond yields have surged super low this morning the ten year bond yield is about one point five three percent you can borrow for practically nothing something that has caught the attention of some big corporations market places Justin how joins us yeah apple revealed yesterday that it's issuing seven billion dollars worth of bonds and you know it's not just apple Walt Disney coca Cola caterpillar United Airlines twenty one companies issued almost thirty billion dollars in debt on Tuesday alone hello low low interest rates yeah companies are borrowing just because it's a good time to borrow no we've been reporting a lot lately about the Russian people trying to refinance their mortgages this is kind of like that lower interest rates on government bonds means companies can borrow more cheaply to John Deere you know during company the tractor maker issue thirty year bonds paying two point eight percent that's a record low for that kind of debt interest rates are so low companies can pay off older more expensive that early in apple's case it'll use the cash for share buybacks and dividends it said it will also be used for day to day operations for buying stuff maybe even into like positions though we know we'll see about that apple already has about two hundred billion dollars in cash and hasn't been buying many companies lately. all the money and still bar remarkably suggested
"As ineffective yeah. Certainly the people who believe that going in this hardened those views but i think think also people who supported trump may have come away from the summer supporting him just as well if not more. It's worth pointing out martine that the white house <hes> gave us a list of what they called historic achievements for president trump this summer. There were more than two dozen items on the list. <hes> you know this white house. Spokesman john deere said it was a historic orrick moment for the presidency to give you a flavor of what these achievements are. One was the meeting that trump had with kim jong hoon at the d._m._z. The border between north korea area and south korea that was a photo op meeting an important active diplomacy. I guess but it hasn't done anything to reverse the trends in north korea in fact north korea continues. I used to launch these short range missiles and has really frightened the japanese and south koreans with their aggression and what are some of the other things that the white house pointed to as some some of the president's achievements from these past couple of months yeah so there's a long list here and some of these things are not actually have not been achieved yet for example. The white house said that the president announced a new trade deal with japan to give farmers more access to export their products while the trade deal has not been executed. It's not been signed. There are a number the other things the state banquet that president trump had with her majesty queen elizabeth during his visit to the united kingdom honoring fallen heroes on the seventy fifth anniversary history of d day in france those are important events but they're not sort of tangible achievements or accomplishments that would necessarily secure somebody re election and were there are other things that were helpful to president trump this summer absolutely look at special counsel robert mueller's testimony july twenty fourth in house. There was a lot of expectation among congressional rational democrats that muller would make the case for impeachment that he would bring new evidence to the table that he would help generate momentum on capitol hill to begin impeachment precedings against the president that did not pan out molar gave a very lackluster performance that was criticized. He did not provide fresh evidence. He really stuck to the parameters of the report details the report and to trump that was a political victory and for the rank and file staffers that you talked to you within the white house and within the administration what did they say about what it's like to have experienced this summer you know they're tired and exhausted and one and republican strategist who works very closely with people at the white house described the sentiment as wake me when it's over. Just let's get through the summer trump. Of course it's is not one to follow a script or playbook or or be very disciplined and a staffer really on this herky-jerky roller coaster all summer long. I should point <unk> out by the way that the the white house spokesman says well. Nobody around here is tired. Were you know very busy getting work done for the american people so there is a defense of that attitude it as well. I also think that that some of these dominant narratives that came out of the summer specifically the the racist tweets about the squad that those kinds of things that galvanize president trump space absolutely and you know when trump was continuing these attacks on squad his advisors were saying look. There's a strategy here. This is a politically tactical move for president trump. It's a way to motivate and galvanized his white supporters. <hes> remember there there certain states states like wisconsin and michigan and pennsylvania where trump won narrowly in two thousand sixteen and hopes to win again in twenty twenty and a key for him to win some of those states according to his advisers visors is to turn out every single sort of trump inclined white voter that you can find in the hinterlands and the wait a message to them to appeal to them. According to the calculation calculation that trump campaign is making is with some of these racist charges so that even if this summer if if it's held up against the standard of other presidents and their summers before before an election year even if it doesn't seem like it was a high achieving summer that for him and what president trump is trying to do in the path that he sees towards reelection and in some ways it might have been a very effective summer. That's right i mean he. He certainly thinks it was an effective summer. I happen to think it was a summer. That tells us a lot about what the next year is going to be alike in that. There's not a grand plan here. There's not really much of a legislative agenda. <hes> there aren't that many concrete tangible things that are getting accomplished at churning from crisis to crisis to crisis in feud feud and trump lights that frankly that's how he won in in two thousand sixteen as he he drove the news cycle every single day and he stoked grievances and he pitted against each other and it worked to his benefit and there's a calculation and that he could do that again but it's not what you would traditionally call governing but when it comes to actual legislative action and passing bills with congress. Do you expect to see see that starting. This fall not much <hes> and part of that is just because of the partisan divide in congress right now one
