Ultrasonic sensors in agricultural automation

Back in the 1980’s, brothers Mike, Gregg, and Don Tvetene were working at their family-owned Tvetene Turf Farms in Billings, Montana, USA. The business was faced with a critical labour shortage at the same time that it was experiencing huge demand for their turf.
