What kind of data do farmers use to make decisions? Where does that data come from?

Become a “farmer” on a journey from pre-planting to harvest to see what decisions farmers are making every year as they farm (or step into a farmer’s shoes as s/he makes a decision based on the data s/he has gathered about her farm). Growers across the country are gaining access to more and more data about their farms. The data is being gathered through equipment or other precision agriculture techniques, then it must be analyzed so that decisions made will be based on evidence. Scientists in all disciplines use the same practices as farmers.
