If you're already a OneSoil user, congratulations! You're just about ready to get started! Sign in with the same credentials. The data will automatically sync across the apps. Now you can proceed to the Processing section.
If you don't have a OneSoil account yet, sign up with an e-mail address and password or a Google, Facebook, or Apple ID account. Later on, you can use these credentials to log in to the OneSoil web app and the OneSoil Scouting mobile app. They're free.
There are three ways you can add fields:
Upload a file with field boundaries. Click 'Add field' and select 'Upload file'. Our app supports .shp, .shx, .sbn, .sbx, .dbf, .prj, .zip, .kml, .json, .geojson, .kmz, .gpkg, .gdb, .gmt, and .jml files up to 10 MB in size. If your file contains data about crops, planting dates, harvest dates, and yield, you can also transfer it. If you have an issue uploading a file, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Select them on the map. This is the easiest way to add fields. We've already identified all fields and delineated their boundaries on the map. You just need to select your field and click 'Save'.
Draw them. Click 'Add fields', then select 'Draw fields'. Use your mouse to place points on the map and delineate your field's boundaries.
If the boundaries aren't accurate, you can edit them. Select a field from the list and click 'Edit info' in the right corner of the screen, then click 'Edit boundaries'. You can also click the three dots next to the field name and select 'Edit'.
If you need to remove a field from the season, click the three dots next to the field name and select 'Delete'. You can also select a field from the list, click 'Edit info' in the right corner of the screen, and select 'Remove field from ...'.
Logging crop rotation makes it easier to store information about your fields in one place. So you don't need to remember which fields were planted with corn this year or which wheat hybrids were planted in 2018.
Crops can be specified right after you select fields to be added to the account. No worries if you skipped this step for some reason. You can add crops later in the field editing window. To open it, click the three dots next to the field name and select 'Edit'.
After a field is added to the account, the app starts processing NDVI data from 2016 to build productivity zones. Our algorithms analyze satellite images for 6 years and select the images where zone boundaries look similar. Later, the zones are validated with relief and soil brightness. It's a vast amount of information, so processing can take up to a few hours. Click a field to see how much time is left. Meanwhile, you can go about your business. Even if you close the browser window, the processing will keep running.
When processing is finished, the fields on the map will be colored green or remain unfilled. Colors show whether a field is suitable for precision farming and if trials can be performed in it.
If the field remains unfilled, it's not suitable for trials. There are two main reasons for that:
Zones are located in different areas of a field from year to year because of different weather conditions. We can't predict the distribution of productivity zones for the next season.
From year to year, the NDVI in the field is homogeneous. So it's no use trying VRA there.
For all other fields, you can create a VRA map for seeding, fertilizer, or plant protection products application and set up a trial.
Time to check out the field report! Click a field on the map or in the field list to see what's been limiting its yield and how you can resolve the issue.
