Accumulating data off which to base decisions is a very critical step in your precision farming operation. You may have data from different systems and sources, so the ability to combine all those items in one place is key to starting with a good foundation.
SMS was developed with this in mind. We strive to support as many systems and data sources that you may need to make accurate decisions in the future. Whether this be data from planting, fertilizing, spraying, harvest or guidance, SMS can house it all and organize it for easy access.
Choose higher yielding seed based on historical yield performance. Save on seed costs by generating variable rate seed prescriptions. Layer planting and harvest maps to easily compare seed performance. Track split-planting operations. Map all hybrids, planting dates, bags planted and location.
Sampling, Scouting, and Reporting
Create and manage soil sampling. Create and manage crop scouting data. Handle data from many different field operations such as tillage, baling, etc. Create and manage data about your fields such as tile lines, landmarks, soil type maps, etc. Create and manage crop plans. Use information for government and insurance reporting.
Track variable rate liquid and/or granular application. Create variable rate application maps and prescriptions. Identify/mark “no spray” areas of the field. Record application operations for regulatory record keeping. Track and display crop health data provided by OptRx sensors.
Guidance Planning and Support
Generate A-B guidance lines. Archive guidance lines from the field for future use. Import/export guidance lines to and from multiple brands of guidance systems.
Analyze harvest data by field area, application records, as planted maps, etc. Overlay hybrid/variety maps with harvest maps to determine yield performance. Review yield performance by year. Overlay yield maps with other field operations to determine how field activities affected yield across the field.
