With managing soil moisture and environmental impacts, Field Connect continues to be just the right solution to help your customer. In addition to the Field Connect information in the Ag Sales manual, there are now competitive comparisons available.
Eliminate the guess work behind managing soil moisture. John Deere Field Connect provides producers and advisers site-specific management information through soil moisture and environmental sensor offerings, facilitating the decision process surrounding crop production.
Reduce input costs through water management
Improve yield and crop quality through data-driven decision making
The quality of a crop can also be affected if correct moisture levels are not maintained during fruit fill. In processing tomatoes, moisture levels are lowered in the final weeks of the season. This ensures that tomatoes are produced that have appropriate brix levels, high solids/sugars, to bring the highest possible price for the producer.
John Deere Field Connect provides detailed soil moisture levels throughout the growing season. When combined with optional environmental sensors, producers have a wealth of site-specific information at their fingertips. This ability to monitor moisture levels and key environmental conditions means decisions can be made around those key crop stages, allowing producers to make informed moisture management decisions.
Meets the needs of a variety of operations
Tiled field situations provide another opportunity for utilizing the system. While moisture may be plentiful, a producer’s ability to control the movement of moisture away from the field can be critical. In these fields, John Deere Field Connect can be used to determine when to open and close tile gates to ensure moisture levels are optimized.
Moisture information can also be important in chemical applications as well, enabling producers to make the most of their inputs, by ensuring soil moisture content and environmental conditions are appropriate for the application. This is true whether or not the field has systems in place to control moisture levels.
