Brian Tischler

Brian Tischler is a Mannville, Alberta-area grain farmer and is the developer of an opensource software program, called AgOpenGPS, that enables farm equipment to be both controlled and autonomously controlled using the existing GPS system.  He originally developed the software to assist with section control and mapping using his air seeder, but the software has since greatly evolved and can now be used for many other applications.  Brian demonstrated AgOpenGPS’ capabilities at FarmTech, CanolaPALOOZA, Ag in Motion in 2018 and he was recently awarded the ASTech Foundation award for Outstanding Achievement in Agricultural Innovation for the development of the software.  At CropSphere, Brian will share the story behind the development of AgOpenGPS, his on-farm experience and will provide insight into where the future may lead with this type of technology.
