From now on, we will recap what happened in OneSoil each month. It will be easier for you to receive updates on new features, and for us to see where we are coming from and where we are heading. In March, we released several important OneSoil web platform updates, welcomed 3 new people to the team, and visited 3 conferences. We're also excited to announce the launch of our free OneSoil Sports app which allows you to predict the results of football matches using the vegetation index✋
⚡ We added seasons to the OneSoil web platform

This is really important. Now you can independently determine the beginning and the end of the agricultural season in your region. Writing down crop rotation and analyzing fields has become even easier! Also, if you decide to divide the field into sections, you can now change its boundaries for a specific season.

Also, do not forget to update the OneSoil Scouting app!

⚡Other platform updates

The field size evaluation has become more accurate, now showing its value to the tenth. The field editing tab has changed: you can specify the date of harvest, the average yield and add several crops to the field in one season. There is a way to zoom in to your fields now - just click the "Fields" tab twice. If you hover on gray areas of the NDVI index for the field, it will indicate that there are clouds. And we're showing the NDVI index since 2016 now!

The web platform is available in French and Spanish now

Oui, nous parlons français and hablamos Español. We will add Deutsch, Italian and Portuguese languages soon. And just as a small reminder, the OneSoil Scouting mobile app is already available in 10 languages.

⚡3 new people in the team

Just like the Universe, we are constantly expanding. In March, frontend engineer Kolya Cherny, product designer Oleg Mayhopar and device coordinator Matvey Sidorin joined us. A few words about each of them.
Matvey Sidorin
Born in Russia, Matvey has lived in Belarus from the age of 16. He studied at the architectural faculty. In his third year there, he founded his first company. He was also engaged in telephony and worked in a financial and technological company. Outside of OneSoil, he loves his wife, his son, and travel.


At OneSoil, Matvey controls the assembly of weather sensors and their delivery to different parts of the world.

Kolya Cherny
Born and raised in Minsk, as a child Kolya would spend every summer at his grandparents country house. This may have affected his decision to join OneSoil, but this is not for sure. He has been actively traveling across Europe and is now thinking about traveling to exotic countries. Also, Kolya writes and plays electronic music.


At OneSoil, he's responsible for making user interaction with the app and the platform easy, fast and enjoyable.
Oleg Mayhopar
Born and raised in Mariupol, Ukraine, Oleg studied to be a sea navigator, worked as a sailor, but eventually became a designer. He plays sports, meditates and writes an evidence-based blog on related topics. Oleg loves nature: he collects plastic as a volunteer and helps to find new owners for homeless pets.


At OneSoil, he's responsible for the ease and convenience of working with information about the fields.



⚡Now the OneSoil Map can be embedded on any site

We have created an Embed button – please use it! Now statistics on 60 million fields and 27 crops in 44 countries are available at all times in all places. Illustrate your articles and spread knowledge around the world.
We participated in 3 conferences

On March 1st, one of our founders, Vsevolod Genin, spoke at the Agrohub Nitro Marathon conference in Kiev. He read a report on the field zoning techniques for differentiated application of fertilizers and explained which method we use. Then we went to the SIMA exhibition in Paris. This is one of the largest agricultural exhibitions in the world; we listened to visionary speeches at round tables and carefully studied the hall dedicated to precision farming. And from March 19 to March 20, our team presented OneSoil at the World Agri Tech Summit in San Francisco, another important international forum. Our stand was very popular – we answered hundreds of questions and had about 50 business meetings. Some of them were very promising, we have our fingers crossed and continue to work hard.


⚡ We learned to predict football scores with an accuracy of 75%

While we were doing the OneSoil Map, we found a lot of soccer fields around the world. As a joke, we decided to see how the NDVI vegetation index of different field zones correlates with the results of football matches. For the experiment, we selected 150 fields in Belarus, Ukraine, France, and England – and analyzed 12,589 matches. It turned out that the team that plays mostly on parts of the field zone with a higher vegetative index most often – wins, and the one that is playing on the field zone with a low index – loses.

We are currently developing a mobile app for professional coaches in collaboration with one of the South American's football leagues. This summer we will release the free OneSoil Sports app for all football fans. Read more about it in our article on Medium.
