    CASE

    Scouting and Imagery

    Scouting to Identify Disease

    A negative Crop Health Change (CHC) notification was triggered. Using the CHC map, the customer examined the field and used the Scouting function to record observations for those discovered locations. A Farmers Edge agronomist viewed the observation notes saved to FarmCommand and diagnosed the field with Tan spot. A variable-rate fungicide prescription was prescribed based on the scouting and imagery supplied.

    Economic Impact

    What if the customer did not apply a fungicide?
