Celebrating Agriculture Week

Agriculture is often referred to as the backbone of civilization. It is the art and science of cultivating the soil, growing crops, and raising livestock for human sustenance. It is a multifaceted and ancient practice that has evolved over centuries, shaping the course of human history and development. At its core, agriculture encompasses a diverse range of activities. It involves the strategic management of natural resources such as soil, water, and biodiversity to ensure sustainable and efficient food production. In recent years, there has been a growing emphasis on sustainable and regenerative agricultural practices, recognizing the importance of environmental stewardship and the long-term health of the land.

 

Innovations in precision farming, genetic engineering, and sustainable practices are reshaping the future of agriculture. In the 21st century, agriculture has undergone a technological revolution, and electricity plays a crucial role in this transformation. Ryan Electrical Solutions offers products designed to enhance efficiency, sustainability, and overall productivity in the agricultural industry.

Electrical power is a vital resource on a farm and potential source of problems if it isn’t managed properly. At Ryan Electrical Solutions, we understand how electricity flows on a farm and can help you monitor this essential component. From automated controls, interior and exterior lighting for livestock buildings, generators for backup power systems, and the safety requirements for grains bins, our certified technicians are up to the task.

With National Agriculture Week around the corner, and planting season about to begin, here are some safety tips to keep in mind anytime you are operating large farm equipment around power lines:

  • Always keep equipment at least 10 feet from lines – in all directions.
  • Inspect the height of the farm equipment to determine clearance.
  • Always remember to lower extensions when moving loads.
  • Use a spotter when operating large machinery near lines.
  • Never attempt to move a power line out of the way or raise it for clearance.
  • If a power line is sagging or low, contact your local utility.
  • If equipment does come into contact with a power line, remember, stay on the equipment until the utility has arrived to de-energize the lines. Warm others to stay away and call the local utility provider immediately
