Climate FieldView™ platform offers 4 key aspects of digital farming that make it the number one digital ag platform in the industry.
FieldView™ gives you the ability to seamlessly map any and all field operations you make in a given field (including coverage, product, and rate). The platform is compatible with common equipment; however, if your equipment isn’t compatible, FieldView™ Drive Map Anything allows you to make field operation map layers.
The seamless harvest mapping drives the second key to the success of FieldView which is having real time insights into your management practices at harvest. You can draw Field Region Reports or select Pass by Pass regions on your yield map to better understand the impact of various management and environment factors from the growing season.
The third key is a platform that stores your data in one location. This ability gives you access to your data via the web or the FieldView app on your phone or tablet.
The final advantage is the ability to share this information with key stakeholders. The grower controls who can receive information. When you share with your Channel Seedsman, local retailer, or other partners, it gives everyone the ability to see what is happening on those shared fields and provide information back to the grower via dropping a pin or creating a field region report.
Below are examples of how FieldView can bring value to your operation:
Dropping Pins: There are 2 types of geo-referenced pins, seasonal and permanent. Eric uses permanent pins to mark his French Drains that were installed on his field. Jim uses permanent pins to mark areas of the field that could use additional tile. Seasonal pins allow you to make observations, but they are deleted when the system changes to the next year. Kevin used seasonal pins to mark rocks and a blown-out tile. Mike used a pin when spraying to mark weed patches to evaluate efficacy after the application. I use pins to share my plot observations, plot notes, and product pictures with my cooperators have also used field region reports that I created in-season to highlight a geography in the field that had a weed concern. At harvest I was able to determine the effect of those weeds on that area of the field by comparing the in-season report to an adjacent area. The outcome was there was no difference.
Data all in one place: I had a call from John that his corn was dying, and he couldn’t figure out why. Upon seeing the field there was clearly a pattern of plants exhibiting herbicide injury symptomology. The current years herbicide program was not to blame because the pattern didn’t match up with current year sprayer tracks. John had been recording his herbicide applications in FieldView, so while we were in the field, he was able to pull up the previous year’s herbicide application map, product, and rate. This information allowed us to understand the cause of his dying corn. Additional data that many growers store in FieldView are tile and soil fertility maps. In addition, FieldView™ Prime provides soil survey maps and weather information, and FieldView™ Plus provides field health imagery.
Harvest Insights: Mark used FieldView to understand product performance on his fields. As he was wrapping up harvesting, it was clear his Channel® brand soybeans were the best on his farm. He made a call to his Channel Seedsman to give an early order to make sure he could get that soybean product next year. All done from his combine. Mitch sets up field level experiments to be able to answer questions he has for his operation. He splits the planter to compare corn products and leaves check strips when applying fungicide to evaluate fungicide performance across both corn products. At harvest he uses the FieldView™ Cab app to generate Pass by Pass field regions and evaluate the results in the combine. Harvest insights are easily managed with split screen. Other data layers can be accessed such as a fungicide application map split with a yield map to analyze yield in a specific region based on the fungicide application map.
Remote View: Randy uses the remote view so he can watch harvest progress in real time. He can see which corn product is being harvested, its yield, and its moisture. Since Randy is running the dryer, he is constantly watching the moisture on corn product being harvested so he can manage the dryer to address any changes in moisture. He also anticipates those changes by looking at the planting map where the corn products may change in the field.
Channel® Brand Custom Crop Reports: Channel Seedsmen are out looking at fields all season long, dropping pins, taking pictures, commenting, and making customized recommendations of your fields. At various times of the year, your Channel Seedsman can generate a Customized Crop Report that can show you the recorded observations on each field in one report.
FieldView continues to increase compatibility and generate opportunities for growers to realize more and more value from the most used digital platform in the ag industry. In addition, we have a dedicated support team both remote and, in the field, to help customers set up FieldView, upload data and learn from this data. As you can see from the examples above there are many ways to extract value out of FieldView.
ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW PESTICIDE LABEL DIRECTIONS. 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.
