We exchange knowledge
Our precision farming expert and OneSoil's cofounder, Usevalad Henin, is rarely in the office because he spends most of his time in the field. Or, quite literally, the fields. Usevalad speaks with farmers, analyzes their fields, and jointly conducts experiments on variable-rate seeding
and applying fertilizers and pesticides.
He talks to farmers a lot, and, fairly often, they agree to partner up.
Last year, several dozen Ukrainian and Russian companies provided us with 4 years of data on fields covering a total area of 7 million hectares in exchange for us analyzing their data. This database includes information on crops, sowing dates, harvest dates, and average crop yields. It's a true gift for our R&D team. Thanks in large part to analyzing this data, we can determine the sowing date in Ukrainian fields with an accuracy of 2-3 days and help improve planning for fieldwork. More lies ahead.
