Trimble adds agronomic service to its Connected Farm solution
"Variability in yield and quality are due primarily to non-uniform soils being managed as uniform soils. In the past, our inability to identify the components of this soil variability prevented us from achieving greater crop uniformity and better economic returns,” said Robert Wample, Ph.D., a plant physiologist and owner of Edgeknoll Consulting, an SIS service provider. “SIS allows us to take a proactive approach to overcoming soil variability, and when combined with geo-referenced variability in crop yield and quality, the effectiveness of this approach is enhanced even more resulting in an ‘agricultural forensics’ approach to precision agriculture.”
The SIS solution is available in several service levels depending on the accuracy and resolution required for the particular crop type and the grower’s production goals. The solution is available through authorized Trimble service providers. For more information on SIS, visit: www.trimble.com/agriculture/sis.
