Precision Agriculture

 What is MyFarm Precision Acre?

Holmes Agro has partnered with NDVI imagery providers to supply high-quality NDVI imagery to our customer base. This satellite imagery can be used in season to check field health on the go. This can improve scouting by letting you know which fields need to be scouted, and where you should be checking. By increasing scouting efficiency we can stay on top of insect or disease outbreaks though the season and minimize yield impacts through quick treatments.

This imagery can also be used as a base layer for in season variable rate applications of dry or liquid nitrogen products, allowing you to optimize your inputs by placing them where you will have the best response.

Please contact us if you are interested in trying out this system on your own farm!

Holmes Agro is excited to announce the addition of Mapshot's Agstudio program to our precision ag portfolio. This program allows us to seamlessly integrate production and application information from leading equipment manufacturer's data management software. This allows us to:
  • Create soil sampling and management zones from soil type, topography and historical yield data
  • Automate the soil testing process
  • Create analysis driven variable rate prescriptions for fertilizer, fungicides, and seeding
The Agstudio platform is also paired with industry leading satellite NDVI imaging, allowing us to create the same management zones, and accurate prescriptions based on in-season crop health.
