There are only so many hours in a day, and we know you can’t walk every inch of every field this growing season. Luckily, FieldView™ has many features that help you spot field health issues remotely, stay up to date on field conditions and track and measure every application this growing season.

How to Use FieldView during the Growing Season:

1

Monitor Fields Remotely

Use field health imagery in FieldView — including vegetation, scouting and true color maps — to track in-season crop health. The maps provide a color index to help you determine which areas may be in need of attention. You can also import and review many different map layers measuring factors like the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), RGB and more from providers that collaborate with FieldView to keep your field information in one place. Lastly, you can create field regions reports to monitor certain zones, such as an area with delayed emergence.

2

Track Field Conditions and Determine Application Timing

Monitor crop progress by navigating to the field health imagery grid view page, and sort by high biomass on the vegetation tab to help identify which fields are progressing and ready for spraying. You can also view field conditions like wind speed and other weather data on all of your mapped fields to help determine application timing.

3

Track Every Application

Capturing as-applied maps or static-rate maps from your application provider is seamless if you opt to share your FieldView account with your provider. Using this data, you can build PDF reports for things like cost-splitting or compliance, and share the report via email or text message. If you’d like to run an application trial, FieldView can help with that, too.

4

Share Data with Your Scouting Team

With FieldView, you can share the location of a field and drop scouting pins with precise GPS information as well as insert comments and images. Or, have your scouting team enter information right into your account for immediate access. As always, you control sharing on your account and who has access.

5

Get Weather Reports for Each Field

View built-in radar, weather forecasts, season-to-date rainfall and the 10-year weather history.
