SGISfarm, the latest addition to the Topcon precision agriculture product lineup, is designed to provide a comprehensive software solution to add value to TPA’s precision farming hardware products. It generated great interest from growers at all of the farm shows for its ease of use by farm owners and operators on their office computers.
