The Challenge

Myee typically receives around 600mm of rainfall annually, but the region has also experienced extended periods of draught, making analysis of soil composition difficult.

“We were blanket-applying fertilizer across the different fields but weren’t necessarily getting consistent results. We wanted a better way to use the same amount of fertilizer.”

Paul Tognetti

The Solution

On-farm weather stations

Soil sampling

Mixed fleet telematics

Unlimited Variable Rate prescriptions

High-frequency, high-resolution satellite imagery

FarmCommand - All-in-one digital platform

Why It Was Needed

The inability to monitor and control the acidity of Myee’s soil across a variety of different soil textures (sandy loams to heavy clays) was one of the tipping points in looking for a precision ag solution.

We wanted a better way to use the same amount of fertilizer.”

Measuring Success

\

Improved phosphorus levels helped reduce fertilizer use

\

Automatic data collection and analysis helped save valuable time

\

Accurate weather reporting tied directly to the fields helped identify rainfall variances

\

Scouting and profit maps allowed for quick and easy crop inspection and yield analysis

\

Local boots-on-the-ground provided key support

\

Experienced an overall improvement in yields

“The reports are very actionable, but it’s great to have a rep in the same time zone who can answer questions or help with the modelling. Together, Farmers Edge helped us achieve a better bottom line”
