    Using yield monitor data and satellite imagery to inform precision management

    With so much data captured on farm, making it useful can be like unlocking Pandora’s box. Researchers from Rothamsted Research – Kirsty Hassall, Alice Milne and Andy Whitmore – share how yield and satellite data can help with precision management in potato crops. Modern technology allows...

    Variable rate N

    Hi all, I’d like to hear what people’s experiences have been like with variable rate N. I’ve been looking at the Yara Atfarm system and it looks quite accessible for the likes of me (not into too much tech and not farming 1000’s of acres). I’m not looking at this because of the current N...

    Would you consider hiring a drone thermographer to help maintain your infrastructure and count stock?

    I am looking to buy into Frontier's Soyl/iSoyl, mainly to move towards applying liquid nitrogen at variable rates. Does anyone have any experience with this service? How well does it work? I have an Amazone UF-02 bought 1 year ago with an Amatron 4 screen, will a link up to this be seamless?

    Software model for nutrient flows on and off the farm

    Does such a programme exist here yet? I’m after something that I can input bought in nutrients, carbon sequestration in soil organic matter, grassland, hedges and trees then work out what leaves the farm as grain, straw, meat, milk etc as well as an attempt at NPK leaching etc. The NZ...

    Will Chinese maize support feature for a consecutive season?

    In the last twelve months, maize markets (Chicago - nearby) have undergone quite a change. From August Chicago maize futures (nearby) climbed 151% to briefly peak at the $7.70/bsl mark ($304.2/t) in May 2021. As we know Chinese purchases have supported the gains. But, if we look forward a couple...

    Why is it always £70 / acre ?

    The old SFP was stuck in the 90's at £70 / acre or thereabouts. ELMS apparently is £70/ acre Carbon sequestering is, you guessed it.........around £70 / acre. Coincidence ? Or is this the universal figure arrived at behind closed doors that the bigger operators will accept without kicking up...

    Nitrogen 3rd pass

    What’s everybody doing? Our milling winter wheats were planted mid October to mid November and so far had 165kg N. We are due another 80kg (liquid) to go for group 1 spec but whilst the calendar says go the crops I think are a month behind due to the dry spell. N2 went on a month ago but it’s...

    USDA FAS forecast UK wheat to stay net-importer for 2021/22

    As we all know, better planting progress for winter and spring cereals has laid the foundations for an increased UK grain production figure. But nearly a month without substantial rainfall across the UK has threatened crop health, with yields likely affected. Production figure forecasts from...

    No Satellite Biomass Imagery Available This Year for VRA N?

    We have not had a useable satellite image since late January so are unable to do any up to date VRA N plans. Given that all these services supposedly use the same satellites, is everyone else in the same boat or am i incredibly unlucky that each of the subsequent ~ 8 passes (approx 1 per week)...

    Mapping/Precision farming software

    I am currently using Gatekeeper for crop recording and mapping/precision farming. There seems to be a reasonable choice for the crop recording alternatives, however options for the mapping and precision farming side of things seem more limited. What are other people using to do mapping and...

    Wheat growth metrics

    What are people doing to monitor wheat as it is growing? Plant counts / tiller counts / ears etc? Brix? I want to put a few more things in place to monitor the crop as it’s growing and I’m trying to work out what is worth while and what’s not. I do some tissue and grain analysis already. My...

    Imaging; usefulness, payback, cost/benefit

    Is anyone using any of the imaging systems in anger? There seems to be a plethora of these appearing and I have meddled with the Agrii contour system. They seem to raise more questions than they answer and on generally light soil they just show lack of moisture, IMHO. They could however be used...
