Every season comes with its own trials and frustrations, including the growing season. From wasted trips to the field to forgetting where you sprayed, there are countless factors that can slow your progress and interrupt your workflow. With FieldView™, you have a variety of tools at your fingertips that can help identify and address field health issues before they take hold of your fields. While there are many tools in FieldView for growing season, this blog post will highlight the four features that I personally find most valuable. They can help you monitor your field conditions, application data and everything in between during this growing season.

How FieldView helps you see past the surface into the heart of your operation


Monitor Your Fields From Anywhere

With FieldView’s data visualization, say goodbye to taking a bunch of long drives around the farm just to find out what’s going on in your fields. Using field health imagery, you can efficiently scout and track your in-season crop health using a variety of vegetation, scouting and true color viewing modes. When it’s time to get out in the field, you can do so knowing exactly what’s happening and where.

One of the best parts of this functionality is the Vegetation map—a real-time visualization map of your field health based on your current plant growth. In short, this color index map helps you determine which areas of your acreage might need attention.

FieldView has a special tool called the Climate Crop Index, or CCI for short. Think of it like a helper that looks at your corn plants from the sky and lets you know how green and healthy they are. It’s similar to another tool called NDVI, but CCI is even better for figuring out how much corn you’ll get at the end of the season.

Recently, FieldView made their CCI tool even smarter. Now, it can look at places where your corn is growing especially thick and strong and tell you even more about how your field is doing. This means you get all the information you need to help you take the best care of your crop.

Finally, for any areas that pose particular challenges or opportunities, you can use FieldView to create field region reports to monitor certain zones, such as those with more standing moisture or delayed emergence. Whether you’re at your desk, on the couch, or in the cab, FieldView keeps you informed, allowing you to focus your energy where you need it most.


Learn from Every Application

We’ve all been there: you’ve misplaced a note you jotted down while in the field, and now can’t remember where you sprayed, or even what you applied. But with FieldView, every detail of your applications are logged automatically. No more scribbling in notebooks or lost records. Our widgets in the FieldView™ Cab app also let you track and log the live weather conditions while you work. With all this data streamlined in one place, you can automatically export PDF reports to calculate cost-splitting or verify compliance. You can also share these reports via email or text message with your dealer or trusted advisor. This is particularly useful in running and assessing application trials.


Harness the Power of Teamwork

No one knows your land like you do. So instead of trying to give your crop scouts detailed directions about where in the field to look, FieldView makes it easy to share precise field locations based on your tablet’s GPS coordinates. You can also drop scouting pins in the FieldView Cab app. And to enable better collaboration in real time, you can also insert comments and images per each pin so everyone can see and understand what you’re doing in your fields. Alternatively, you can have your scouting team enter information directly into your account for immediate access. Regardless, you control who can access your data and account. With everyone on the same page, you can ensure your scouts get pinpoint directions while you enjoy peace of mind.


Stay Ahead of the Weather

In addition to having immediate access to your localized weather conditions and forecasts thanks to built-in radar, FieldView also provides other valuable information specific to your fields. In particular, it tracks information like the total rainfall during each season, as well as a comprehensive look at your 10-year weather history to help you adapt to whatever the season sends your way.
