Matt Palmer of Soil & Water Agricultural Technologies (SWAT) will be working with LICA to set up a Florida chapter.

Discussing his background, Palmer told Construction Equipment Guide, “What we are is a co-op of folks in Florida who have worked in the ag business in Florida for over 15 years and we have come together to build farm management systems. We do everything from sensors, laser leveling, tiling systems, low head irrigation systems, pivot irrigation, telemetry, security and automation and it is all integrated so you can run it from your smart phone. With my background in both agricultural and construction I have contacts throughout the state that will help build the chapter.”

Palmer will serve as president of the Florida chapter until the group can hold elections. With a background in both agricultural and construction, he has contacts throughout the state.
