Farm Data That Makes A Difference

Using Precision Data to Raise Yields

Every year, we track data on our fields and soil types, looking at factors like population, fertilizer and nitrogen applications. In the winter when we do our planning, we look at the results from the previous season and compile them with data from past years. I sit down with the AgVenture team and look at the issues we know affected us.

Discovery Group

Not too long ago, Jeremy nominated me for the AgVenture Discovery Group, and it was through that work that we started doing learning blocks. Then quickly we were working together to come up with a lot of maps, throwing a lot of learning blocks out there and researching things that way.

As far as insights, two years ago, after our first go-round with learning blocks, we saw no dampening off from higher populations or nitrogen. In other words, the higher population blocks saw a linear correlation to increased yield. And the same thing with nitrogen—we saw an increased yield.
