As an agronomist, using the Climate FieldView™ platform to view the performance of products on my growers’ farms from planning to planting to growing season to the finish line has helped me gain insights that were previously not possible. The ability to look at and analyze every agronomic layer and management input is a key to understanding what works and doesn’t work on their farms. And, most importantly, understanding what products and techniques produced the best result helps me recommend the best production plan for success the following year.
At its inception, FieldView™ map layers enabled a grower to look at his yield performance across the field to see where the highest and lowest yields were located. Then, we were able to add application layers such as fertility, fungicides, and tillage that gave us additional insights to the field yield layer. And currently, FieldView is used to help make precise prescriptions for planting populations and seed product choices that can help maximize performance and profit for each field.
It is truly exciting to sit down with my growers in the fall and winter to review their FieldView account for product performance. This information can help growers ditch products that performed poorly and develop future crop plans based on the best-performing products. In a late harvest season, such as we are having in 2019, the ability to almost instantly see and understand performance will be a huge time saver for making input decisions for 2020.
We have come a long way in being able to see things we were not able to before. Finding the winning combinations of products and techniques through the FieldView platform is truly an exciting future.
Performance may vary, from location to location and from year to year, as local growing, soil and weather conditions may vary. Growers should evaluate data from multiple locations and years whenever possible and should consider the impacts of these conditions on the grower’s fields.
