Basically, the field report presents your field inside and out. It contains information about productivity, soil brightness, relief, limiting factors, and recommendations to increase yield.

There are a few points we'd like to focus on.

What is soil brightness?

Soil brightness on a satellite image reflects organic and humidity content. It's visible in infrared. If the soil is dark, it contains a lot of organic matter and moisture. If it's light, it means the opposite.

What are productivity zones?

Productivity zones are areas in a field with different yield histories. The area with the highest yield for several seasons is considered a high-productivity zone. Medium- and low-productivity zones are identified in the same way.

How does the app identify productivity zones?

We process 6 years' worth of satellite images of your field, starting with 2016. Our algorithms select images where zones are distributed in a similar way to build productivity zones. Later, the zones are validated with relief and soil brightness.

Where do we get data about relief and soil brightness?

Relief data can be found in open sources published by national governments or intergovernmental organizations. To determine soil brightness, we use satellite images from the Sentinel-2 satellite. Our algorithm selects images in which the soil is plowed and has no crop residues.

Now you know in which fields VRA technology can be used. Having learned all the strengths and weaknesses of your field, it's time to set up a trial and create VRA maps to get the most out of your field!
