What is the purpose of NDVI Imaging
The basic principle of NDVI relies on the fact that due to the spongy layers found on the backside of leaves, they reflect a lot of NIR infrared light. When the plant becomes dehydrated or stressed, the spongy layer collapses and reflects less NIR light, but the same amount in the visible range. When you combine the ratio between the two signals, you can determine how healthy or sick/stressed a plant is.
Maximum use of fertilizer by directly feeding to the roots
Reduced costs from: water, energy,
fertilizer, pesticides, labor and maintenance
Reduced weed and
disease pressure
Increase yields and profits
Maximum use of acreage

"We started experimenting with drip irrigation on carrots to improve their selling quality during the summer months. We have reduced the amount of water needed to grow a crop which has helped prevent plant disease in the leaves and has increased our carrot yields."

-Joel Tomlin of Miedema Produce

"The online data showed that we were leeching costly fertilizer below our plant's root zone, and with that direction, we were able to reduce irrigation hours throughout our entire farm operation".

-Joel Tomlin, Miedema Produce

Eliminates manual tagging of modules
Provides on-the-go documentation
Simplifies record keeping
Improves module tracking and delivery to the gin

Farmsight is more than AMS technologies...

It i
s about providing solutions to our customers that:

Improve their operational efficiency
Optimize their inputs

Soil maps are the base-layer for any spatial analysis

Think of it as a MRI of the field - Allows us to see the soil composite from surface to 3+ feet down.
This "map" translates to the water and nutrient holding capcity of the soil.
Findings: EVA was able to increase yields in corn by 15.1%, and in wheat by 7.0% with 3.0% better test weight.

Strength 30.30
Uniformity 80.59
Staple 35.13
Leaf 2.25

Three Types of Soil Maps:

(EC) Electrial Conductivity: Great for most conditions - requires bare field and proper soil mositure
(EM) Electromagnetic: Good for established crops
Grid Sampling: Good for budget and all conditions
To accomplish this we provide three soultiuons:
