Services - Nutrient Management, CAFO & AFO Permitting
GPS Field Mapping
TeamAg will drive all field boundaries with a four-wheeler and GPS unit. Accurate acreage will be recorded and hardcopy maps provided including: highways, roads, and streams along with the field boundaries labeled with name and acreage of each field. Also included is an acreage report for each client/farm.
GPS Soil Sampling
Soil samples will be collected using the method the client prefers. Locations will be recorded with a GPS unit. The most common is 2.5 or 5 acre grids. The fertility results are attached to the points within the GIS, and maps showing the fertility variability will be printed. Soil type maps, when the data is available, will be printed. Hard copy soil sample results are included. Field mapping is included in this option.
GPS Yield Mapping
GPS yield data collected at harvest will be printed with field boundaries derived from the GPS yield data. Maps including acreage and yield averages per farm or field will be produced. Raw data directly from the yield monitor will be cleaned and erroneous points removed. Yield data can also be imported from other mapping software programs.
GPS Yield Mapping and Analysis
Further analysis can be performed and specific reports given. Possibilities include comparing yield to fertility levels, yield to soil type, yield by variety, etc. as long as the needed data is collected or provided.
Advanced Record keeping and Reporting
After geo-referenced field boundaries are recorded, a geography-based field level record-keeping system can be used. This program allows records to be kept by field, in the client-farm-field hierarchy. Data will be input by field, by farm, or by selected fields and farms. Data can include planting date, harvest date, hybrids/varieties, tillage methods, fertilizer applications and rates, pesticide application and rates, manure application and rates, manure type, etc. The program is adaptable to record whatever data is required for analysis and reporting.
Nutrient Management Mapping
Digitized GIS maps showing field boundaries with acreage, waterways, diversions, buildings, wells, storage facilities, buffers, highways, roads, and streams. Aerial Digital Orthoquad photographs and soil type data are also utilized to provide a high quality map for planning purposes.
