Want to learn more about precision agriculture and what modern farming technologies can do to grow your operation? Our Precision Ag 101 is here to give you a quick overview.
Aerial imagery acts as an aid to an agronomists' typical scouting routine, and the images offer insights into plant health problems such as possible nutrient deficiencies, models for disease/insect, and environmental stress/damage.Aerial Imagery
Grid soil sampling divides the field into areas of a defined size (1, 2.5 and 5 acre grids). This allows the assessment of nutrient variability present in each field with high resolution.Soil Sampling
Plant Tissue Sampling
Tissue sampling helps monitor the crop's in-season nutrient levels. Coupled with aerial imagery, tissue sampling has the opportunity to detect plant nutrient deficiencies before physical signs are present.Tissue Sampling
Variable Rate Seeding
An excellent cropping year depends on thousands of different uncontrolled environmental variables and only a handful of controlled variables.Variable rate seeding gives farmers better control over how that handful of variables can positively affect yield.Variable Rate Seeding
Any time crops are deprived of adequate nutrients, especially at critical growth stages, yields will be negatively impacted. Weather, poor soil health, variability in soil types, field elevation changes, and standing water all put crops at a higher risk. Precision agriculture tools can help you manage these risks with accurate, real-time data about soil health, crop development, and yield potential.
In the era of modern agriculture, farmers have the capability to manage their farms and operations like never before. However, for many farmers trying to adopt modern agriculture concepts and practices, a bounty of data can become a very real and challenging problem of “information overload.”
There are many “tools in the toolbox” that can be used to address any issue a farmer might face in their operation. What is important is choosing the right tool for the job. Here are some basic questions every farmer should ask themselves when evaluating their operation to incorporate precision agriculture tools and management practices.
