Seed2Soil: Precision Agriculture at its Best
Latham Hi-Tech Seeds’ Seed2Soil® program helps farmers take precision ag to the next level by planning for variability in their fields. Seed2Soil organizes GPS data and then generates user-friendly information that will allow growers to make better informed decisions and lead to increased overall profitability.
The Top Performers Report is a tool that uses real-world fields to select what corn hybrids or soybean varieties will work best on each farmer’s field. A Top Ten report allows farmers to see agronomic trends that can be hidden when looking at printed maps. These reports also help farmers see a correlation between yield and factors like planting speed, CSR rating, organic matter, potassium, magnesium and soil type.
Farmers interested in a Seed2Soil membership must have: GPS yield monitor data, grid soil samples, variety/hybrid information, and basic fertilizer and chemical application records. Membership has several benefits including one-one-one meetings for fertilizer planning, variety placement and VRT planting. For more information, contact Mark Grundmeier at 641-692-3258.
