Consider: Keep a copy/Share a copy
If you are using a data view services, or an automated
data upload function or device, you can still use a USB

your controller to archive or share with other
services, keep as a backup.
I recommend using an online data storage such as
Dropbox to store your data for yourself.

and integrates accounting, crop plans, grain
inventories, crop input applications, soil
sampling, yield maps, contracts and more
