Decision Making and the Evolving Crop Plan
You collect the data in the field: soil samples (fertility), imagery (growing season data), and yield data (harvest information). We analyze it for you and provide reports. What do you do with the reports? Ultimately we want you to take the reports and make changes to your operation. It would be really odd if you had achieved all optimum results right out the gate. Sure, every year is different and we can’t predict exactly what the future will bring but by knowing what happened and comparing year after year you can create more sound decisions.
Taking the time to plan out your years cropping activities during the winter months will increase your profitability.
Lowering seed rates in poorer producing areas and increasing seeding rates in high producing areas can become very profitable when scaled.
Fertilizer Management Zones and Prescriptions can be created using Yield Maps, Veris Maps, Imagery and other sources. There are several methods to check how these plans are working.
Check out our selection of soil moisture probes. We are working with UNL to evaluate different methods of scheduling irrigation.
Weeds and insects are becoming increasingly resistant to pesticides. Take the time during the slow months to make a written pesticide plan.
How you till the soil has a big impact on both profitability and your soils health. We can help design programs to measure this impact.
