zp-nh1Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “How important is immigration/farm labor to election?”

This is really a pretty easy one to guess the results to. Somewhat to Very Important got about 84% of the votes. It certainly is an issue for debate in our upcoming Presidential election.

Our new ZimmPoll is live and asks the question, How long until we have autonomous tractors on the market?

Both New Holland and Case IH debuted autonomous concept tractors during the Farm Progress Show. Judging from online comments this is a very polarizing announcement. Although they are a concept only at this point they show what can be done with new technology that lets an operator run a tractor without physically on the vehicle. You can watch video about the announcements using the links above.
