The agronomists I've been working with often say that crop yield strongly correlates to the number of hours an agronomist spends in the field. Let's find out how to prepare for crop scouting and how to do it right with the OneSoil Scouting app.
The best way to assess the quality of crops and to predict possible risks is to walk through the field regularly and to inspect the crops yourself. But what if the field area is 70, 100, 200, or even more hectares? And you have several of them? Obviously, you wouldn't be able to walk through the whole field, and you'd have to choose the best walking pattern. Satellite field monitoring and NDVI maps can help you.
Satellite monitoring keeps an eye on crop development with satellite imagery. The satellite images are used to calculate vegetation indices (NDVI is the most popular one) which help to assess the quality and quantity of plants in the area. We'll explain to you how to carry out field scouting using these tools and how OneSoil Scouting
helps you do it.
