Producers are collecting and relying more on ag data collected by farm equipment.  Much of this data might be uploaded to the “cloud” and stored with third party.  Storing with third parties can lead to questions of who owns farm data?  In this episode, Paul is joined by his colleague, Ashley Ellixson, extension legal specialist, and Dr. Terry Griffin, cropping systems economist, Kansas State University.

Resources discussed in this episode:

If you have questions for Ashley, you can email her at aellix@umd.edu or tweet her at @legally_ashley.  If you have questions for Dr. Griffin, you can email him at twgriffin@ksu.edu or tweet him at @spaceplowboy.
