Our crop management platforms are designed to assist you in understanding crop health conditions at a field level. They help reduce loss risk and allow you to be more productive in the field by utilizing current, future, and historical weather data, growth models, soil data, and spray and harvest advising. In addition, EASYview Weather helps you to verify and locate the proximity of hail events in your fields! For more details on Field Insights and EASYview Weather, read more below.

What is Field Insights?
Field Insights is a crop management platform designed to provide you access to the most relevant crop environment conditions for better risk management. It helps you quickly understand crop health conditions at a field level. These tools help reduce loss risk and allow you to be more productive using field level data like current, future, and historical weather data.
See what has happened in the past 24 hours, as well as what the estimated forecast looks like for the next 24 hours.
- Soil Data:
Review soil information from eighteen individual map overlays to soil composition graph data. Review the types of soil within a field to help scout out new farmland, or gain insight on planting in the future. Map layer options include Soil Map Units, soil moisture and temperatures, available water storage, drainage class, hydric class, erodibility factors, farmland class, hydrologic group, crop production, frost free period, albedo, erosion class, loss tolerance factor, flooding frequency, actual evapotranspiration, palmer drought index, and wetland displays. All available to help you manage risk in the field.
- Growth Models and Growing Degree Days:
Field Insights can assist with estimated harvest and spraying dates based on weather data, field information, and planting dates.
- Harvest Advisor:
Harvest Advisor looks at the optimum harvest moisture for supported crops along with the user’s target moisture. It then projects the ideal time to harvest.
- Spray Advisor:
Spray Advisor provides information to help minimize spray risks and liability, while ensuring product efficacy and crop safety. You set the ideal spray conditions for your field, and the advisor will identify the most ideal spray application window based on environmental conditions.
- Acreage Reporting:
Pre-populate your acreage reports with data captured through Field Insights. Additionally, after the planting season, push your acreage report data back into Field Insights.
- Frost Alerts:
Provides location specific environmental intelligence to help you plan for preventative actions when frost is in the forecast. Frost alerting capabilities are part of our focus on sustainable farming.
“When using Field Insights, we found the accuracy of the weather to be very acceptable when deciding on spraying opportunities. It allows us to manage our time more efficiently, because we can determine which field to spray next from our office or our phone. After setting parameters for the system to understand our expectations, it is very accurate.”
