  • Improve Yields with Crop Scouting Apps

    By Cortney Farmer

    Published Mar 30, 2018

    Every successful growing season begins (and often ends) with crop scouting. Accurately aggregating data on crop conditions, weed risks, pest threats and a range of other mission-critical details does far more than offer farmers an up-close look into year-over-year trends; effectively interpreting field and insect intelligence in virtual real-time gives growers the insight needed to implement fast and agile intervention measures to prevent crop loss and ultimately protect profits. Use Mobile Innovation To Optimize Higher Yields And Higher RevenuesFor previous generations of farmers, scouting was a long, arduous, and sometimes highly inaccurate process. Growers, agronomists, and applicators walked their fields, often independently, carefully writing notes and recording vital details to help with both current and future year strategies...

    How Smart Farming Protects the Environment While Saving Crop Loss

    By Jenny Hoo

    Published Sep 6, 2019

    Smart Farming, or known as Smart Agriculture is mainly associated with the term Third Green Revolution due to its sustainability and circular economy features that emphasises on the application of ICT solution in the agriculture industry. Itrepresents the application of modern Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and IoT solutions into farming to increase the efficiency of agricultural operations. Smart farming entails the obtaining of real time data of soil, air, and crops, aiming at increasing the quality and quantity of agricultural production while protecting the environment. By using Internet of Things (IoT), data analytics, software and hardware, robotics, sensors and more, the entire smart farming concept promotes circular economy, thus leads to sustainability farming... The data will be processed and catalogued for the use of mapping strategies to counter the weather, increase productivity and reduce GHG emissions...

    Know your soil

    By Dwight Henry

    Published Aug 16, 2018

    The most powerful information every farmer can harbor is the knowledge of his soil, and how they use this knowledge will decide the outcome of the season. Today conducting soil analysis is one way of accomplishing that, but what other options do you have during the growing season to stay proactive. Technology has come a long way, and those that embraces it's power reaps it's benefits. Supposed you are growing wheat and want to optimize your output then you could use this model by PrecisionHawkAbsolute Sense™ – In Crop Mapping – Nitrogen – Winter Wheat*A new layer of information to support agronomic decision-making.

    View Treely's Slade Gleaton's article for SC Tree Farm News, July 2017 edition: "A Changing Future for Small Private Timberland Owners in South Carolina"The forest products industry in South Carolina has come a long way since England laid claim to the territory in the 17th century. Over the years, large timberland holdings have been responsible for sustaining the forest products economy through naval stores, lumber, and paper. Today the forest products industry contributes over $21 billion to the South Carolina economy and continues to grow stronger each year. As we look forward, one of the challenges the industry faces in South Carolina is the growing fragmentation of timberland ownership. Today, forested timberlands cover approximately two thirds of the state (over 12 million acres). Nearly 75% of this total is owned by non-industrial, private landowners. When you break this down further and look at the family owned timberland component, there are nearly 7 million acres across the State, of which over 3 million acres are composed of parcels of 50 acres or less. That’s a lot of acreage and tonnage spread across a growing segment of small forest landowners. Why is this happening? A recent study from Clemson University points to death (and subsequent sale or inheritance of property), urbanization, rising incomes and regulatory uncertainty as the main reasons for larger timber tracts being split into smaller parcels. “Across the South, where poverty and minority land ownership is prevalent, small landowners continue to struggle and large tracts continue to be sub-divided by heirs due to death, taxes and poor estate planning,” says Sam Cook, Executive Director of Forest Assets with the Natural Resources Foundation at NC State University, and recent recipient of the Henry Hardtner Award, which recognizes contributions to forest stewardship and sustainable forest management on non-industrial private lands. These smaller parcels are sometimes taken out of timber production or are not managed as effectively as they were in the past. In addition, the smaller landowner is often faced with the difficulty of selling timber because the smaller volumes are often too costly to harvest. “I own around 20 acres and when I decided to sell my timber, it was very difficult to find a buyer who was interested in harvesting my small acreage,” shares Joe Wheeler, a landowner in Chesterfield County. From the buyer perspective, it boils down to efficiency and profit margin. “Today’s loggers have more efficient and expensive equipment. Moving equipment between smaller tracts leads to a loss in productivity that puts pressure on already thin profit margins,” adds Jeff Tant with White Wood, Inc. “Even though there is no clear path to figuring out small tracts, one day a solution will be found and this will be a real plus to the industry.” One possible solution to smaller acreage parcels may be found online.

    A Precision Agriculture Approach for Durum Wheat Yield Assessment Using Remote Sensing Data and Yield Mapping

    Authors: Piero Toscano, Annamaria Castrignanò, Salvatore Filippo Di Gennaro, Alessandro Vittorio Vonella, Domenico Ventrella and Alessandro Matese

    Journal: Agronomy 2019, 9(8), 437;

    The availability of big data in agriculture, enhanced by free remote sensing data and on-board sensor-based data, provides an opportunity to understand within-field and year-to-year variability and promote precision farming practices for site-specific management. This paper explores the performance in durum wheat yield estimation using different technologies and data processing methods. A state-of-the-art data cleaning technique has been applied to data from a yield monitoring system, giving a good agreement between yield monitoring data and hand sampled data. The potential use of Sentinel-2 and Landsat-8 images in precision agriculture for within-field production variability is then assessed, and the optimal time for remote sensing to relate to durum wheat yield is also explored. Comparison of the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index(NDVI) with yield monitoring data reveals significant and highly positive linear relationships (r ranging from 0.54 to 0.74) explaining most within-field variability for all the images acquired between March and April. Remote sensing data analyzed with these methods could be used to assess durum wheat yield and above all to depict spatial variability in order to adopt site-specific management and improve productivity, save time and provide a potential alternative to traditional farming practices.
