Five Ways FieldView™ Can Save You Time During Growing Season

With the rush of planting in the side view mirror for most corn, soybean, and cotton farmers, attention quickly turns to keeping track of the health and progress of crops across your operation. 
No rest for the weary, right? 

We have a few suggestions that can help save you sometime this summer — which hopefully turns into enjoying more time with family and friends. We assembled this quick list of FieldView™ tools that are designed to help you effectively monitor conditions in your fields and efficiently target areas of concern. 
How to Use FieldView™ During Growing Season:
  1. Monitor for Possible Yield Threats

    Use field health imagery in FieldView™ — including vegetation, scouting, and true color maps — to track in-season crop health. The maps provide a color index to help you determine which areas may be in need of attention. You can also import and review drone imagery from providers that collaborate with FieldView™ to keep your field information in one place. You can also create field regions reports to monitor certain zones, such as an area with delayed emergence.
 
  1. Track Field Conditions and Determine Application Timing

    Monitor crop progress by navigating to the field health imagery grid view page, and sort by high biomass on the vegetation tab to help identify which fields are progressing and ready for spraying. You can also view field conditions like wind speed and other weather data on all of your mapped fields to help determine application timing.
 
  1. Create Spray Reports 
Capturing as-applied maps or static-rate maps from your application provider is seamless if you opt to share your FieldView™ account with your provider. Using this data, you can build PDF reports for things like cost-splitting or compliance, and share the report via email or test message. If you’d like to run an application trial, FieldView™ can help with that, too.
 
  1. Share Easily with Your Scouting Team  
With FieldView™, you can share the location of a field and drop scouting pins with precise GPS information as well as insert comments and images. Or, have your scouting team enter information right into your account for immediate access. As always, you control sharing on your account and who has access.
 
  1. Keep tabs on the Weather for Each Field
View built-in radar, weather forecasts, season-to-date rainfall. And the 10-year weather history.
