Farm grid mapping involves the use of Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Global Information Systems (GIS), together with real-time data collection and accurate position information, to map out a plot of land for accuracy in plot planning. This service is useful to farmers because it enables them to analyze different variables such as crop and soil moisture and crop yield. It’s vital in identifying various points of need, saving farmers time and money by preventing over-application of fertilizer, water or pesticides.
Precision maps are an essential tool when it comes to precision agriculture, assisting farmers by showing them exact locations on the farm and providing specific information regarding those locations. Such maps comprise geo-referenced data, which can show information regarding a precise location on a farm as well as characteristics of a type of soil or a specific crop. From moisture levels to nutrient levels, farm grid mapping can be a handy tool for today’s modern farmer.
GPS can facilitate field mapping, farm planning, yield mapping, crop scouting, and soil sampling, allowing growers to work better under low-visibility field conditions such as rain, dust, fog, and darkness.
Farm grid mapping is essential when it comes to correlating crop yields and production techniques with land variability. This helps farmers determine the most suitable and effective plant or soil treatment strategies to boost production. Growers can use the maps for the precise application of water, fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides.
Precision agriculture mapping is important in micromanaging of farms. It involves the timely collection of geospatial information to provide site-specific treatments that are designed to increase produce while also protecting the environment. Farm grid mapping facilitates the use of high-tech tools in the agricultural industry, which is not only more precise but more user friendly and more cost-effective.
