Technology continues to expand at a rapid pace, and the farming industry is just one industry moving forward with the change.
Royce Thompson is the president of the Cowden-Herrick High School FFA chapter. He says there are self-driving tractors already out on some farm fields.
Chapter secretary Makayla Watson says it allows farmers to manage other parts of the farm while crop work is being done, but he can also get involved in the work if necessary.
Members of the Cowden Herrick FFA chapter appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
