Crop Scouting – Using All Your Data, Part 2

Melissa SandfortAg Leader, Insights Weekly

Insights WeeklyLast week, we discussed utilizing your precision ag data while crop scouting. While it’s important to have access to that reference data in the field, you may ask yourself how can I use GPS technology to precisely and more efficiently record crop and pest observations? Or how can I precisely map and integrate my crop sensor readings into precision scouting software? How can I create custom tailored scouting reports and securely archive scouting data?

SMS Mobile software features a standard set of crop scouting attributes to easily document growth stage, height, condition, population, damage, pest count and other details regarding that observation area. Being able to choose from pre-defined pick lists saves you valuable time in the field vs manually noting these details. SMS Mobile also provides you with the flexibility of creating custom attributes for your operations unique needs. This allows SMS Mobile to be used across many different types of operations from corn fields to vineyards.
