AgSmarts and GreenPoint Ag Form Partnership to Promote Needed Precision Ag Adoption in Southern US
AgSmarts and GreenPoint Ag of Memphis, TN have announced a partnership that will support the adoption of Precision Ag products and practices. AgSmarts provides a tailored sensing technology platform through the GreenPoint Ag network to help producers and their management team boost yields while minimizing resource waste and reducing operational costs.
Precision Ag is a growing segment of the agriculture industry, providing additional tools to help producers and service providers tailor an enhanced agronomic strategy. Precision Ag tools help producers determine the best decisions for planting, application, monitoring, and harvest throughout the growing season.
The AgSmarts platform has the power to exist as a standalone solution, or to enhance existing product and service offerings. AgSmarts complements existing Precision Ag applications and farm management tools and provides valuable actionable information that translates into time, energy, and money saved.
“No one technology is the magic bullet. Smart Precision Ag leverages the strengths of multiple technologies and collectively amplifies their strength. Precision Ag focuses on tailoring a suite of inputs to best meet your needs: selecting the right seeds, preparing the fields, monitoring performance, tweaking fertilizer inputs, tracking climate variability, and more. When all the technologies converge and work in unison, then you can achieve this symphony of data and decisions. That’s where the real power of precision Ag exists.” Brett Norman, CEO, AgSmarts.
GreenPoint Ag has developed a program for Precision Ag technology, called Incompass. Incompass is an all-inclusive program that brings together multiple farm data collection and analysis tools to help farmers utilize crop inputs more efficiently and realize maximum economic yields. Incompass bundles together GreenPoint Ag’s agronomy technology products and services such as soil sampling, field-mapping, recordkeeping, satellite and aerial imagery, and variable-rate crop nutrients, crop protection, and seeding. AgSmarts’ products will provide another layer of data to each acre to help efficiently use water and other resources. AgSmarts offers a sleek, cost-effective tool for soil moisture sensing, aiding in irrigation management and application timing. Adjusting irrigation inputs with the aid of AgSmarts’ platform can help growers save water and optimize operations.
As the market faces tighter competition and declining commodity prices, growers must seek solutions to maximize dollars spent per acre. Through the AgSmarts partnership, GreenPoint Ag wants to assist the grower in maximizing every dollar spent to achieve a higher ROI on the acre.
