Directed Scouting and Weekly Emails
With Directed Scouting, you can sort your fields three different ways:
- In-season change
- Field variability
- Scout priority
These sort filters are accessible by clicking on Field Name in your Field List navigation window and selecting the desired filter from the dropdown menu.
To take full advantage of these Directed Scouting filters, make sure updated crop types are assigned to all fields.
In-season change compares at least two clear images of a field taken within the last 15 days, and measures vegetation change in your fields over that period of time.
Granular Insights compares the in-season change for all your fields by crop type and provides a ranking of low, medium, or high, indicating the relative amount of in-season change as compared to other fields of the same crop type. In-season change can show expected changes in vegetation as the crop matures, impacts of weather events, fertility misses, mechanical issues and more.
Field variability assesses vegetative uniformity across your field using the most recent imagery captured within the past 7-10 days.
Granular Insights compares field variability for all your fields by crop type and provides a ranking of low, medium, or high, indicating the relative variability of vegetation in a field as compared to other fields in the operation. Fields may rank higher for variability where multiple varieties are planted in the same field, or where there are differences in soil type, water or fertility within a field.
Scout priority takes the two rankings above (in-season change and field variability) and combines them into a single ranking to help you prioritize scouting efforts, by crop type.
With these field rankings and what you know about your fields, you can prioritize where you put your boots on the ground, ensuring you are investing your time and money in the right place.
Weekly Scout Priority Emails
Scout priority emails are sent weekly on Monday to each member of your operation during the growing season. These emails show the top fields to prioritize for scouting, by crop type.
