DataFarm is an innovative, cloud-based, data-driven platform, exploiting multiple layers of agronomic data to output climate risk assessment and climate-smart recommendations. Enabling growers to enhance soil carbon sequestration and crop productivity, helping them optimize their profitability and return on investment.
Specific agronomic algorithms can also be customized and the platform rebranded on a white-label basis for use by individual consultancies, cooperatives, dealers and industry groups.
It’s an integrated solution that works at scale, pulling together soil quality and compaction data with climate-related inputs, using advanced analytics to help compute optimal sowing windows and precision irrigation strategies.
By combining analytics of the relevant chemical, biological and physical data, the solution generates climate-smart recommendations based on projected yield-gap analysis, helping growers optimize their planning.
Potential crop productivity can be calculated for each plot, associating climate risk modelling with relevant climate, soil fertility, compaction, pedology and biology data. The effectiveness of specific sowing windows can be simulated, using accumulated climate and soil-related data, giving growers unprecedented insight into the predictability of crop yields at a specific plot level.
Maximum attainable yields can be identified for each plot, along with the likely losses due to water deficit and farming practices, while irrigation can be optimized to ensure the best possible crop yields and water use efficiency.
Overall agronomic efficiency can also be calculated at the end of the crop season, benchmarking the actual and the maximum attainable productivity at the harvest date. In conjunction, crop-monitoring scouting functionality also enables growers to keep accurate, geo-located data for monitoring pests and diseases.
The result is a comprehensive, single data platform, organizing and reporting on all your agronomic activities from soil and climate conditions through to precision planning tools.
The platform currently provides proven solutions, already delivering significant benefits for growers across Brazil.
