12 Jul Sentera Case Studies Highlight Agronomic Value of In-Field Data
Real-time data from Sentera FieldAgent unlocks valuable insights at the field edge
Sentera partnered with customers, developing case studies that show quantifiable agronomic value to a variety of crops and operations.
These three Sentera case studies illustrate how an ag implement dealer, crop scouting business, and large Midwestern grower used Sentera solutions to collect real-time data, make in-season decisions, and ultimately allowed them to realize quantifiable financial benefit and drive improvements.
Sentera case studies provide agronomic proof
The usefulness of ag tech is determined by the results it generates. Sentera Double 4K sensor, a DJI drone, and FieldAgent software help Integrated Solutions Manager Ryan Hutchison drive value with customers at a John Deere dealership. In one instance, a grower saved 35-40% on fungicide by only spraying areas identified by Sentera solutions, rather than the entire field.
When Sentera added zone management capabilities to FieldAgent, Matthew Johnson, Founder and CEO of a crop scouting company was able to optimize his entire operation. Using a Sentera Single sensor, DJI drone, and FieldAgent software, zones were created within minutes of landing and at the field edge. In just a single day, Matthew could go from data collection to delivering agronomic insights his clients could use to write prescriptions or make other management decisions.
Farm manager Chad Galles leveraged Sentera’s PHX fixed-wing drone, Double 4K sensor, and FieldAgent software with the spot-mapping feature to put together a comprehensive, accurate picture of 8,200 acres of corn, sweet corn, peas, and soybeans spanning more than 200 miles.
After planting 25,000 to 26,000 plants per acre, FieldAgent’s Spot Maps tool showed a count of 23,000 plants. Chad verified FieldAgent’s stand count, putting his mind at ease just two weeks into the growing season.
