FieldAgent™ platform is a complete agricultural data analytics solution that’s with you wherever you are — in the office or in the field. It takes you into meaningful data products with actual economic value, such as NDVI and NDRE zone analysis, population analysis, weed mapping, and elevation & 3D mapping.
FieldAgent™ platform offers a wide range of agricultural analytics products, each with measurable economic value to a growing operation. Each result is available as a data-driven map layer within FieldAgent™ — visible on your computer, on the web, or on your phone. Results are shareable with clients and advisers, even if they don’t have FieldAgent™ accounts.
These valuable, field-edge analytic tools are available to all FieldAgent™ customers, helping ag professionals leverage early-season data for replant decisions, allocate inputs to higher yielding areas, and more-precisely apply chemicals. Providing crop analysis using real-time RGB and NDVI data offers agronomists, crop consultants, and growers expanded field insights before and during growing season.
FieldAgent’s weed maps use computer vision to study every photo of your field, and accurately identify the location, and density of weeds. At the field edge and without an internet connection, FieldAgent takes your high-resolution images, analyzes them, and delivers you the results in a color-coded map, giving you an exact snapshot of weed pressure and location in a field.
By leveraging weed maps, you are able to produce map-layers and shapefiles that identify areas with weeds. Then, use this critical data to apply chemicals with precision.
PLANT POPULATION MAPS
The population toolkit delivers plant count per unit area in a field so you can take in-season action. After collecting high-resolution data, the analysis can be run without an internet connection, delivering you a color-coded Plant Population Map while you stand at the field edge.
Results are delivered in a color-coded map in an easy-to-use format. Reported in plants-per-acre (PPA), this analysis gives you an accurate measurement of plants in a field.
FieldAgent supports population mapping of corn, soybeans, potatoes, and other row crops.
SPOT SCOUTING MAPS
Spot scouting maps deliver analytics measurements based on regular grid sampling of a field. The Spot Scouting Map will sub-sample the field with nominally 1-2 measurements per acre. This dramatically increases the number of acres you can fly on a single battery while still collecting an order of magnitude more samples per acre than traditional manual scouting practices.
Free, unlimited stitching is included with every FieldAgent subscription.
Sentera partnered with the Open Drone Map project to bring a no-extra-charge stitching module to FieldAgent. There are no limits on acreage, resolution or usage. Simply install the module on your computer, and stitching begins automatically
Topography and elevation data helps you to increase your operating efficiencies when building variable rate prescriptions, creating drainage or land-leveling plans, and designing subsurface drainage. You can easily order Elevation Maps within FieldAgent by simply clicking a button. The Elevation Map is then delivered to you as both a color-mapped topographic map image and set of industry-standard shapefiles.
Elevation models help you streamline activities such as land leveling, prescription generation, sub-surface tile design, and surface water management, including ditching activities.
DATA ANALYSIS WITH NDVI TOOLBOX®
FieldAgent’s dynamic crop analysis tools help you identify stressed areas by comparing plant health over time and determining optimal input placement. Using the NDVI Toolbox, you are easily able to adjust NDVI ranges, allowing you to clearly see stressed areas and model crop health over time.
Through data analysis, you can build simple prescriptions based on NDVI auto-zone map creation, then export to the cab of a tractor. What’s more, you are able to easily export your crop information to agriculture data analysis tools such as the John Deere Operations Center, FieldView, SST, SMS, and more!
