    Improve Yields with Crop Scouting Apps

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...

    “Cover crops can do so many different things — everything from erosion control to suppressing weeds to breaking compaction to fixing nitrogen to supplemental grazing,” he says... “How do you know if it has been a success if you didn’t know what you were trying to accomplish?” Berns asks... Berns says they will take growers through a series of questions, such as “Do you think you have compaction issues? Have you seen erosion? Are you trying to suppress weeds? Do you have livestock?” to help pinpoint what they want their cover crops to do... Berns says they’re currently working to add short videos on the species selection page where growers can learn more about the cover crop and see how it performs out in the field... 1 goal should always be at 80% or higher or you probably aren’t going to be happy with what you’re trying to accomplish out there,” Berns says...
