Map the differences in the rate of development within a crop
Crop Variability Mapping highlights problems such as pH, drainage, compaction, nutrition, weeds, or pests (soil and foliar), nematodes and other soil pests.
Match nitrogen application to crop requirement
Variable rate mapping optimises crop performance and nitrogen investment.
The ratio of green leaf area to the ground area on which the crop is growing. An indicator of canopy development, light interception and the amount of crop biomass.
GAI is an industry recognised metric that is used by farmers in the UK to optimise the use of nitrogen-based fertilisers and growth regulators in OSR. There are three advantages of knowing the GAI value of a crop 1) to gauge the total Nitrogen required 2) to decide whether a PGR will be cost effective and 3) to define the number and timing of Nitrogen splits to each field.
Desiccation requirement zoning map
Oilseed rape desiccation decision support to optimise timing and seed maturity. Oilseed rape Pollen Beetle risk period.
Identification of key diseases
Pre-symptomatic specific disease identification of key diseases in wheat, barley, OSR, beet and potatoes to allow adaptive fungicide strategies.
Identify zones of highest grassweed population
Mapping identifies areas of high grassweed pressure in break crops to ascertain where additional residual herbicide application will be needed in the following cereal crop.
Variable application mapping based on lodging risk and growth rate
Variable rate late season growth regulators enable targeted use of late season PGRs to avoid over or under application.
Pre-symptomatic detection of Late Blight in potato canopy
Pre-symptomatic detection of Late Blight in potato canopy PCN identification and quantification for mapping in subsequent crops Marketable yield estimation in potato crop, and percentage of crop which is at the correct tuber size at a given date Pre-harvest yield prediction in cereals and oilseeds to inform marketing decisions, storage and logistics.
Blackgrass crop destruction maps in winter cereals in late May
Blackgrass Crop Destruction mapping prevents seed return from herbicide resistant blackgrass.
Reporting on sclerotinia risk in relation to crop flowering status
Sclerotonia mapping enables a reduction fungicide usage, sclerotinia infection and subsequent yield loss.
