DATA & ANALYSIS

Four cobs of corn being measured and the kernels being counted for yield estimates in the fall.

Using digital agronomy platforms such as Climate FieldView or others, the crops team can create a plan for each field and we can monitor and analyze the data throughout the growing season with yield data. Further to this, we can create variable rate maps for fertilizer or seed. This information will be used year over year to help us continue to build you the best crops and input programs.

Services:

  • Yield monitoring
  • Field application data handling and analysis
  • GPS/grid soil sampling
  • Standard Soil sampling
  • On-site nitrogen soil analysis
  • Variable rate map creation

In order to give you the best recommendation, your Crops Representative may recommend standard or GPS/grid soil sampling, and/or on-farm nitrogen soil analysis.

Precision Agriculture

“Precision Ag” is a term that’s being thrown around in the industry, but for us at Embrun Co-op its more than just a word. It’s our way forward.

We believe that investing in the equipment, technology, and training in precision ag methods for our staff is the best thing we can do for our producers and their farm businesses.

Launching our efforts in precision ag is Geo-referenced Soil Sampling. Using a GPS linked grid, soil samples are taken throughout the selected fields. Each sample is associated with GPS coordinates and once processed at the lab, the results are presented on a series of maps. 

Each map displays the results for a different nutrient found in the soil and shows the varying levels as demonstrated in the image below.

This information provides your Crop Advisor with the most accurate knowledge with which to make suggestions and provides a map for the precise application of crop inputs.
