November 2021 | Release Notes
New and improved features, updates, and enhancements in Granular Insights.
Farm & Field Proposal + Other Report Enhancements
We’re continuing to enhance our reporting capabilities in Granular Insights by adding a new Farm & Field Proposal Report, as well as a “Generate Reports” window where you can quickly and easily select the report you’re looking for and preview other reports that will soon be available!
With the new Farm & Field Proposal Report, you’ll have your field plan for the year in hand, so you know:
- At the field-level:
- what product is going on each field (and on how many acres of that field)
- the seed treatment suggested
- the intended seeding rate
- total units of product needed for each field
- In total:
- how many units of each product are needed
- number of acres you’ve planned for across your operation, ensuring nothing is left out
- A summary of the technology traits used across your operation, including;
- acres covered by each trait
- total units of each trait
To generate a report, simply navigate to the “Activities” tab and select the fields you’re interested in, select “Generate Reports,” and choose the report(s) you’d like to run.
View notes list at the operation & field level
Love how easy and quick it is to find, filter through, and view your notes from the mobile app? We’ve brought the same intuitive notes list feature over to the web application.
Instead of drilling down to the correct field and clicking through pins to find the correct note, you're now able to view your notes at an operation and field-level on the web application.
Find a list of all notes on your operation by going to the Map tab and clicking the new Notes tab at the top of your field list. Use the keyword search and field search filters to further refine your notes list and quickly find the note you’re looking for.
To quickly find a note on a specific field, select the field from your field list and scroll to the bottom of the field details information to see a list of your notes on that field.
Yield estimates in just a few taps
Need a quick way to estimate yield that isn’t so manual and time consuming?
No more rough guessing at how much bin space you’ll need or how much you’ll have available to contract - we’ve added a new way to quickly estimate yield on the Granular Insights mobile app!.
To get started, all you need to do is tap the blue “+” button, select “Yield Estimate” and snap a picture of an ear of corn from the relevant field. Our proprietary algorithm estimates the kernel count and combines that with the field’s stand count and kernels per bushel at harvest to estimate the yield. (We recommend grabbing enough ears to serve as a representative sample from the field).
Save that yield estimate to the correct field, so you’ll be able to reference this field observation as a pinned note moving forward.
Take the guesswork out of identifying pest, disease, and deficiency issues
Accurately identifying pest, disease, and deficiency issues can be difficult. Not only is a misdiagnosis expensive in terms of treatment options, but any delays can be costly as the threat continues to spread and increase in severity.
With this latest update to the Granular Insights mobile app, digitize your field guide and take the guesswork out of identifying pest, disease, and deficiency presence in your fields.
From the mobile app, tap the blue “+” button and select “Threat.” Take a photo of the issue you’re seeing, and results will display momentarily. For best results, ensure your photo focuses on only one threat.
Save your threat results to the relevant field as a pinned note for easy reference throughout the season.
Generate Nitrogen export summary PDF with prescription map
Need a visual map to understand what and how much product is needed on each field? For Granular Nitrogen users, we’ve added a prescription map to the Nitrogen Export Summary Reports for any exports going forward, allowing you to visualize the intended application rates by zone to ensure machine accuracy.
We’ve streamlined the way we calculate boundary area
What’s changed? We’re now accounting better for the curvature of the earth’s surface. As you can imagine, this change is pretty minor - any change in boundary area for your fields will be minimal.
