How many fields are registered in OneSoil?

Let's start with the main thing – how many hectares of fields users around the world are monitoring with the OneSoil apps. Ukraine, you are the champion! Since 2017, farmers and agronomists from almost every country in the world have signed up in our apps. In most countries, we have automatically delineated field borders to make farmers' lives just a little easier.

What’s growing in the fields?

Some of OneSoil users have a hundred different crops planted in one field! Some users are growing hazelnuts, basil or yams. But most of the fields are still planted with more common staple food crops. Soft winter wheat is the most popular crop among our users, and lavender is the least common crop.
