Modern agriculture equipment is highly complex and often requires farmers to hire certified technicians whenever there are problems. Many companies have locked down the computers that run their equipment with proprietary software and hardware, and due to the DMCA anyone who modifies the proprietary DRM risks being targeted for copyright infringement. This has led to a number of farmers seeking open source alternatives. One example is Farm Hack. Farm Hack is a group of farmers who are building open source farming technology in order to promote resilient agriculture through open source, community driven design.
