Precision agriculture (PA) is a farming management concept based on observing, measuring and responding to inter- and intra-field variability in crops.
Precision agriculture (PA) is a farming management concept based on observing,measuring and responding to inter- and intra-field variability in crops. Precision Agriculture is no longer a new term in crop production. It is now a widely accepted practice. Aerial imagery is a key component in utilizing precision agriculture techniques for the management of farmland. Imagery does not replace the need for crop scouting. Instead, it directs growers to areas of the field that require ground-truthing – which aids in the interpretation and analysis of what is being sensed.
CROP MONITORING FROM ABOVE
Satellite imagery is one of the most valuable tools in precision agriculture today and with imagery every 5 days (cloud dependant), farmers can easily detect changes over time.Detecting changes, helps identify management issues that may be easily fixed or avoided in the future - for example, uneven spreading or spray misses - and for monitoring on-farm trials. The early and timely detection of any potential negative effect on the crop is the main objective of Satelite imagery. It also alow the user to compare realtime senarios and data with data of up to 5 years back.
NDVI MAPS EXPLAINED
A Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) is an equation that takes into account the amount of infrared reflected by plants. Live green plants absorb solar radiation, which they use as a source of energy in the process of photosynthesis .Crop Scan is an multi dimensional platform not only allowing the user to view NDVI images but also to view the water holding capacity of the soil up to 20 cm deep, plot soil tests on a grid and manage insect scouting on the farm electronically.

CROP RECORDING - SMART FARMING IN THE CLOUD
Crop Recording Management (Crop R) is an online crop management system which brings the agri-food community together, making field recording and data sharing quick, simple and efficient.Farmers are currently frustrated with the masses of paperwork and audits they have to complete to ensure their end produce is marketable. Crop R is a cloud based farm management system for pesticide, fertiliser, agronomy and record keeping, which allows the grower to maintain records on his mobile device or personal computer.
This enables easy transfer of vital crop records, MRL and EurepGap audits among many others allowing hassle free and efficient information to be handed across. Crop R seamlessly integrate with the Dacom disease forecasting and irrigation scheduling software to supply you with one dashboard for all your needs.
