In the current state of digital agriculture, many digital technologies and services are offered to assist soybean producers. Opportunities for capturing and analyzing information related to soybean production methods are made available through the adoption of these technologies. However, often it is difficult for producers to know which digital tools and services are available to them or understand the value they can provide. The main objective of the project was to assimilate and categorize current digital technologies available to producers today, understand how they are being used, and identify potential value they can provide.
