Data Management in Precision Farming
Since the early days of precision farming, yield maps have been a mainstay. Some of us would print the maps ourselves, usually after several days of cussing the computer and software. Others would have someone else print the maps for use, letting them do the cussing. The result – “WOW, that’s neat!” But what became of these "neat" maps? They were most likely archived in a binder and forgotten on a shelf. The same was true with fertility maps.
As precision farming progressed, we started to collect more layers of data. As a result we accumulated more notebooks on the shelf with more pretty maps. We had variety maps, population maps, and some as-applied maps (although many times those were at the fertilizer dealers in his notebook on a shelf). The question was (and still is in many cases) what is the value of the paper in those notebooks on the shelf?
Get Value From Your Data
In order for precision farming to be valuable, someone needed to take that data and help producers begin to get value from it. To meet that need, Precision Solutions Ag, LLC was created as a sister company of West Enterprises to help producers get value from their data. Connect with agmapping.com to find out the value you have stockpiled in your maps on the shelf.
