Chad Rupe is a former Administrator of USDA’s Rural Utilities Service and current Managing Member with Rural America Strategies. Mary Cullen writing for the Fiber Broadband Association in an article titled: Taking Precision Agriculture Further with Fiber, highlighted Rupe’s comments from a podcast covering the Precision Ag. Rupe’s comments can be found in this article which includes a link to the podcast. One of the most significant statements of the article is, “Rupe stated that the benefit of adoption averages around 15% on gross income.”  Increasing farm income by 15% is significant. However, many farms in North Carolina can’t connect because adequate infrastructure is not available.
