Precision agriculture has revolutionized farming. Technological advances coupled with better tools and more available data allows farmers to streamline and automate processes while reducing waste to increase profit.
The Importance of Precision Agriculture
Technology has made information more accessible. From climate patterns to soil analysis, the amount of data available to farmers is astounding. Access to historical data allows farmers to identify trends to manage land more efficiently than ever before.
Precision agriculture allows you to create a custom plan for your acreage. It is no longer necessary to seed, fertilize, or water land equally only to have mixed results at the end of the season. For example, you can identify areas of a field that are more able to hold water or require less fertilizer than others and adjust irrigation or nutrient applications accordingly. FieldIQ creates prescription files for your controllers so you can easily deliver seed, water, and fertilizer right where and when it’s needed. This precise control empowers you to increase your yields while minimizing input costs.
What FieldIQ Can Do for Data Management
Gathering more data, especially over time, allows you to craft more precise solutions to maximize the efficiency of the farm. Of course, effective use of such vast amounts of data requires a system to organize and analyze the information. Precision ag software FieldIQ can help by making all of your planting, application, and yield data, analyses, and reports available in one place.
When using FieldIQ, your profile is accessible and manageable anywhere via your iPad to save you time and energy. You’ll also have access to cutting-edge telematics and asset management features that allow real-time data to be captured from your machinery and transferred to you. You no longer have to physically be at the field to manage your zones or troubleshoot issues thanks to the remote accessibility.
FieldIQ also helps you manage documents related to inventory, assets, and work orders. This makes your general bookkeeping records accessible and can help you identify trends and projections to help improve your profitability.
