Adding Eyes on your Field

WHAT EXACTLY DOES THE R7® FIELD MONITORING TOOL (FMT) HAVE TO OFFER?

1. MORE EFFECTIVE FIELD SCOUTING
A multi-field dashboard displays daily performance of all the fields on a farm or in a specific area within that field. You, as a grower, will be notified of variability that may need immediate assistance and further evaluation. Crop tiles show how the fields rank on performance, as well as which fields are trending up, down, or averaging out. (Black = Higher than average biomass levels, White = Average biomass levels, Red = Lower than average biomass levels). Field Monitoring Tool helps to plan nutrient applications more precisely by providing up-to-date information during the season. FMT uses daily, satellite imagery to measure fields based on biomass accumulation.

2. IN-SEASON MANAGEMENT DECISIONS
The R7 Field Monitoring Tool can help you to pinpoint the fields that need to be focused on compared to others. In-season imagery with the R7 Field Monitoring Tool provides better insight to each of your fields, creating a more individual management approach. Understanding the variability within each field allows you to focus on specific areas for scouting as well as application decisions.

If you are among the 11 members of my audience (including my mom) who read my newsletter last month, you’ll recall that I was being a little braggy about getting caught in a snowstorm in the St. Paul area. Then we got hit with a snowstorm here a few days later. I guess I’m not as special as my mom thinks I am.

Despite the possibility of a few more nights of sub-freezing temperatures in the last week of April, our agronomy locations are not slowing down as they enter their busiest season. Our agronomy division and producer members are working hard to plant this year’s crop, with long days and short nights being the norm. It’s important to be extra cautious during the next couple of months. Farm machinery will be frequently entering and exiting fields and wide loads will be encountered on the road. Whether you’re driving to work or moving to the next field in your tractor, always be aware of your surroundings and never assume that others can see you. Take it slow and be safe.
