Season planning
Plan the crop arrangement and the cultivation technologies in a more convenient way than on paper and in Excel. We will help you digitalize your fields and upload your data
  • Digital field map
    If you already have a digital map, for example in .kml or .shape format, we will upload it into the service. If you don't, we will help you prepare one by outlining a paper map.

    Field digitalization lets you define the actual cropped area more precisely, to visualize the crop distribution, and makes it easier for new employees and advisors to navigate your fields.
  • Crop rotation
    With AgroMon, you can clearly plan the crop arrangement for the new season. We will help you upload the information for previous years.

    One screen displays the key information for all the seasons: crops, breeds, sowing and harvesting dates, and yield. You can see the location of the crops on the map and the statistics on the planted areas and the forecrops.
  • Flow process charts
    The creation of flow process charts for key crops allows you to plan the production for the season. Flowcharts include the main stages of field operations, such as soil preparation, fertilizer application, sowing, crop protection, and harvesting.

    When a flowchart is assigned to a field, the operations plan is displayed, which can be then compared with the actual operations performed.
Crop health monitoring
You can control the crop health by scouting the fields with the mobile application. This helps guarantee that your crops are in no danger
  • Mobile scouting
    Mobile applications for Android and iOS make it possible to scout fields, taking geo-referenced photos, recording the crop condition and problems detected.

    Most information is filled in from catalogues, so it only takes a few minutes to create a report. Mobile applications work off-line, and when the internet connection is restored, the report is uploaded and becomes available to your team.
  • Reports with the built-in scheme
    Reports are created using the scheme built into the application. It includes the vegetative stage, the overall crop condition, and the parameters relevant for a particular crop at a particular stage. Weeds, diseases, pests, and other problems are selected from the catalogues.

    IIt is easy to send a report to your colleague's email, download it in .pdf, or print it out. The report may also include recommendations on technology changes.
  • Control over the situation in the fields
    The decision-makers can see all the reports in one interface and can select the reports where an alert is marked, or poor crop condition is indicated.

    The farm owner and the chief agronomist get a true picture of what happens in the fields. Analytics is available on the frequency of field visits, the employees' activity, and the key problems specified in the reports.
Satellite imagery
Use satellite imagery to find the fields that require special attention. NDVI vegetation index helps you quickly detect the problem area
  • Satellite monitoring
    Satellite monitoring can be used to find an area of weed infestation, disease or pest development, as well as seeding gaps, errors in soil preparation, fertilizer and crop protection application. Such monitoring is not a substitute for field visits, but it helps to find the problem even in the field, away from the road.

    New images are available every few days if the cloud coverage permits. The image resolution is 10 meters per pixel, which is sufficient for spotting most problems.
  • NDVI index
    NDVI, or the normalized difference vegetation index, is the indicator of plant development in different areas. It is calculated based on how the plants absorb and reflect light with different wavelengths.

    The index has values ranging from -1 to 1. During the season, it first increases with the crop's growth and then drops as it matures. The index value difference inside a field or between different fields tells you that the plants are developing non-uniformly.
  • Field ranking
    To monitor a large land bank conveniently, the images for all fields are displayed on a map together. Field ranking by NDVI helps you quickly find the fields that require attention.

    Using this tool, you can identify where vegetation is lower and higher, which can indicate the plant stress and weed infestation respectively. At the end of the season, the same tool helps you determine the best desiccation and harvesting order.
Field operations management
Manage the field operations by creating a plan and recording the works performed. Assess the work quality using the built-in scheme
  • Operational planning and fact recording
    You can plan your operations a few days in advance and mark the fact of their performance in the field's page, even off-line in mobile application. This allows all the team members to be aware of the work progress and to avoid errors.

    The most important parameters are recorded for each operation, such as the soil preparation type and depth, the variety and the seeding rate, or the pesticides used for spraying. When scouting a field, you can give recommendations for a planned operation or assess the quality of a completed one.
  • Operation quality assessment

    To make sure that the technologies are complied with, you can assess the quality of a completed operation during scouting. There is a built-in scheme for each type of operation. For example, for sowing you are prompted to assess the deviation from the planned seeding rate and seed placement depth.

    There are analytics available on the quality assessments, it helps you see the overall picture of the works carried out and select the problem fields.
  • Work progress tracking

    Based on the planned and actual operations, summary statistics on the progress of the works for particular crop is available in the service, for instance, on sunflower herbicide spraying or winter wheat sowing.

    When operations are recorded on a timely basis you are always aware when certain works have begun and how they progress and can see all the advisor recommendations and quality assessments on the same screen.
Machinery GPS tracking
Control the operations, find and correct errors using the machinery GPS tracks
  • Integration with GPS monitoring
    We can help you integrate AgroMon with the GPS monitoring system used at your farm. Integration requires almost no efforts from you and takes up to two weeks on average.

    After such integration, a GPS track is automatically linked to any field operation you have recorded. As a result, you can confirm the field was fully processed following the technology.
  • Information on the machinery's operations
    AgroMon automatically calculates the main parameters for each track: the processed hectares, the operation time, the average and maximum speed.

    This functionality is actively developed, with such features as analysis of the weather during operation and gaps and overlaps detection to be added in the future.
  • An addition and not a substitute
    AgroMon does not substitute your GPS monitoring system but complements it, facilitating control over field operations for the agronomist and the farm owner.

    We do not install or service trackers and fuel level sensors, do not control the fuel chain and the drains and do not integrate with the weighing stations to control the harvesting. Specialized software is available for these purposes.
Collaboration with advisors
Get your crop protection, seed and fertilizer suppliers and distributors connected to AgroMon. The advisors can scout your fields and provide recommendations
  • Agro-support
    AgroMon makes it possible to bring together advisors from different companies that consult your farm on the usage of the supplied products.

    You see their field reports and the recommendations they give, and can ask them questions on the technologies.
  • Recommendations and communication
    After a field visit, the advisor can give you a recommendation, for instance, suggest that you should adjust the sowing timing, increase the herbicide dosage, or carry out an unscheduled spraying.

    A scout report can be sent by email with one click, as well as be discussed with connected advisors should any questions arise on the situation in the field.
  • Field trials
    The service allows agronomical trials to be carried out: create zones in the field where you implement different technologies, track them separately and compare in special reports.

    This helps you analyze the results of commercial (comparison of the supplier's product and what the farmer uses) and standard (comparison of different crop cultivation technologies) trials.
Schedule operations using accurate weather data. We will help you connect a private weather station
  • Forecasts and spraying intervals
    The 3-hour local weather forecast for the next 5 days is available: the temperature, the expected amount of precipitation, the wind strength and direction, the humidity.

    This forecast helps you schedule the field works. To make it even easier, the service can show you the best intervals for spraying.
  • Historical data
    The historical weather data includes the maximum and minimum daytime temperature and precipitation for 5 years. The degree days and the accumulated precipitation over the current and previous seasons are calculated based on the history.

    This information helps you assess the farm's climatic conditions and select the optimum crop varieties and cultivation technologies.
  • Connecting weather stations
    By default, we use weather data from OpenWeatherMap, but we can also connect a station installed at your farm in order to obtain more accurate history and forecasts.

    Our partner for weather stations is Kaipos. For Kaipos stations we can also integrate soil temperature and moisture sensors. Metos (Pessl Instruments) stations are also supported.
Agronomic catalogues
Find the information you need in catalogues of pests, seeds, pesticides and fertilizers. They are always at hand, even in the field
  • Pests
    The catalogues of weeds, diseases and pests include a total of more than 1000 objects. They are constantly extended and improved with participation of crop protection experts.

    When you mark problems during scouting, you are prompted to choose a pest. This information is available off-line in mobile applications.
  • Seeds
    The catalogue of seeds is compiled in accordance with the state register and is regularly updated.

    For each hybrid you can view description, authorized regions, FAO and trial results.
  • Pesticides and fertilizers
    The catalogues of crop protection and fertilizers are compiled in accordance with the state registers and are regularly updated.

    For a pesticide, you can view the active substances and the regulations for its use; for a fertilizer, the concentration of NPK and other macro and micro elements.
Make decisions based on the data. Download reports for further analysis
  • Summary analytics

    The service provides overall analytics of the situation at the farm for the owner to be able to efficiently control what happens in the fields during the season.

    You can keep track of the progress of operations, field visits and problems detected during scouting.
  • Selection of technologies based on the data
    Analysis of the data accumulated in AgroMon helps you make informed decisions on the technologies for the next season.

    Beginning with the statistics collected by the service, such as the crop yield depending on the forecrops and hybrids, you can see the impact your decisions make on the yield, up to the level of a particular spraying in a particular field.
  • Reports in Excel and PDF

    The information accumulated in the service can be easily downloaded in Excel reports containing the detailed history of each field's development during the season and comparison of technologies used in different fields. This allows for further analysis of the season's results.

    Based on scout reports, you can download PDFs which can be emailed to your colleagues or printed out for further discussion.
