No one ever said farm life was relaxing, right? Especially when a new season cranks up with the rush to plant, spray, you name it. Well, even if it can’t be relaxing, at the very least farming should be rewarding, right? (Here’s where Climate FieldView comes in.)

To help you stay on top of field and crop conditions that can make your hard work pay off, we’ve compiled a list of five ways FieldView can help focus your efforts throughout the season. And hey, if these tips save you a bit of time in the field so you can spend more time relaxing with friends and family, all the better.

1 Keep on top of yield threats

No one wants to see their crop suffer. Thankfully, FieldView’s field health imagery can help you keep track of in-season crop health with features like vegetation, scouting and true colour maps. These maps give you an easy-to-read colour index to help you figure out which areas of the field need attention, so you can focus your efforts there.

FieldView also lets you import and review partner drone imagery to keep all field info in one place. Then, use all the above info to create customized field region reports to keep an eye on zones of concern, like areas with delayed emergence.

2 Track field conditions to determine crop dry down for harvest timing

A great crop comes down to good timing. FieldView can help you monitor crop progress via our field health imagery grid view. How? By sorting out your fields by biomass levels, you can see which fields are drying down more quickly than others This will help point you in the right direction to the field that needs to be harvested first.
