INTEGRATED DATA SOLUTION
Field-Centric Data Management & Analysis
Precise data leads to informed decisions. With Smart Solution, we approach data on a field-by-field, zone-by-zone basis throughout the entire season. From collection to transfer to management to analysis, we do the heavy lifting, turning the right data into information you can actually use.
With Smart Solution you’ll have access to the industry’s best technology, hardware and historical data. Our precision technology specialists will visit your farm to get you up and running, and best of all, none of our equipment costs extra.
On-Farm Weather Stations
To understand how weather affects your crops, you need accurate and precise information directly from your fields. Working with you to determine optimal locations, we'll install one advanced weather station for every 2,500 acres that you farm. You'll have access to field-centric forecasts, real-time current conditions and 10-day forecasts all from FarmCommand.
On-farm weather stations measure and record:
- Relative humidity
- Wind speed/direction
- Solar radiation
CanPlug is a durable and rugged device that connects directly to your equipment, regardless of brand. While it's responsible for many jobs, this powerful piece of hardware makes many of the FarmCommand features possible by tracking and transferring equipment and operational data automatically and in real time.
- Automatic data collection
- Wireless data transfer
- Collects both equipment and operational data
Satellite imagery holds a wealth of information that can be used to improve crop production. That's why Farmers Edge works with the industry leaders in satellite imaging. We have a large database of historical satellite imagery and our 5-meter in-season satellite imagery allows you to accurately monitor crop growth throughout the season.
FarmCommand is a fully integrated farm management platform that gives you access to your data as well as powerful tools that help you make informed decisions. Available on your desktop computer or mobile device, FarmCommand is ready when you are, wherever that may be.
Real-Time Fleet Management
Real-time Fleet Management is powered by the universal CanPlug, which tracks equipment and operational data in real time. This enables you to see where your equipment is and how it is being used from the comfort of your office using your smartphone or tablet. This information provides you with a better understanding of how jobs are being completed and gives you the ability to make decisions that improve productivity and operating efficiency on the fly.
- Track equipment in real time.
- Receive alerts when an operator exits or enters a pre-set location.
- Receive alerts when an operator exceeds a pre-set speed.
- Monitor excessive idle time to lower fuel costs.
- Track vehicle mileage to prolong the life of your fleet and reduce unexpected downtime.
Field-Centric Weather is your best opportunity to outsmart Mother Nature. With precise weather data coming directly from your fields, you’ll gain insight into how weather conditions are affecting your crops. We’ve partnered with The Weather Company, an IBM business, to provide you with sophisticated forecast models that enhance Farmers Edge agronomic models. With these powerful tools, you’ll be able to make decisions that prevent yield loss and boost crop potential.
- Location specific conditions
- 10-Day forecast
- Enhanced radar map
- Public service watches and warnings
- Tailored alerts
- Historical weather analysis
We’ve built FarmCommand to work across many devices, including smartphones and tablets. You can log an issue from the field, make informed decisions while working and stay up-to-date while away from the office. With mobile access to FarmCommand, you’ll always have secure access to all of your farm’s data.
Organization has never been so easy. Plan out your season at the farm and field level, set up events tied to particular assets and create alerts for specific individuals.
As-Applied Maps provide you with a wealth of information. Was your prescription applied accurately? Is your overlap percentage too high? Is your equipment working properly? With As-Applied Maps, you gain insights into all these areas allowing you to take corrective actions.
With FarmCommand, you can give access to your entire team. Easily set up users and determine who has access to what information. Schedule user-specific events and the right people will be notified. You can even provide access to your trusted agronomist or dealer representative.
Combining field-level data with high-resolution satellite imagery, FarmCommand includes powerful maps that give you unparalleled insight into your fields. Whether you need access to raw data maps, As-Applied maps, or our analyzed Precision Maps, you’ll have a clear understanding of your land.
Precision Harvest Map™
The Precision Harvest Map is not your standard yield map. Our industry-leading analysis engine automatically cleans data by removing erroneous data points, fills missing swaths due to logging and calibrates data from multiple combines. The result is a comprehensive and precise field summary of your yield.
- Identify yield fluctuations within a field.
- Gain insights into field area, harvested acres, total bushels, and average yield.
Precision Health Map™
The Precision Health Map utilizes in-season satellite imagery and field-level data to provide an accurate evaluation of the health of your crop. By sourcing and identifying any issues, before they impact your yield, you’ll be equipped to make proactive instead of reactive decisions.
- Gain insights into long-term soil complications such as compaction, salinity and pH levels.
- Identify short-term management issues such as seeding, spraying and fertilizers issues.
- Optimize fungicide applications and crop protection solutions.
- Save time while scouting.
We’ve built a fully customizable alert system into FarmCommand. Whether it’s equipment information or a weather forecast, you’ll receive either a text message (SMS) or an email alert based on conditions you determine.
With Smart Solution you can rest assured that we’re here to help you every step of the way. We have a dedicated team of scientists, agronomists, engineers and specialists behind Smart Solution. Our mission is to help you succeed.
Carbon Offset Credits
We offer a convenient Carbon Offset Credit Program that puts money directly in farmers’ pockets. With no risk and very little paperwork, we make it easy for you to stay focused on managing the farm. Available to farmers in select regions with Smart Solution (CCP) and VRT Solution (NERP).
