AgVoice is the world's first voice-to-text start-up company that allows ag professionals the freedom to work hands-free while on-the-go. The startup will be hosting a Tech Talk on October 17, 2018, to share how farmers can use the voice-to-text technology to improve productivity and workflow management, increase documentation accuracy and gain valuable insights to optimize the use of resources in production.
