Burrus is using the Data-Driven Farming System by MyFarms to combine proprietary product knowledge with the data farmers own and manage to improve crop production. MyFarms was created to make it safe and easy for family farms and their advisors to increase yield by embracing Data-Driven Farming® practices such as site-specific hybrid placement and planting rates.
A Burrus product recommendation leverages proprietary test plot data and
product ratings to help customers quickly discover the best seed
variety and planting rate for each field. The solution combines on-farm
data such as soil types, field and equipment details, and farm-specific
management practices with regional product performance ratings managed
by Burrus to quickly find the best product combination for each field. Seed performance can vary dramatically by soil type and production
management method. The Burrus and MyFarms partnership is enabling
growers to make decisions that increase profitability while maximizing
the world’s food, fuel and fiber supply.
We continue to brainstorm new ways to offer pest and disease alerts within the MyFarms system as well as offer ways that farmers can keep track of data associated with each of their fields. One example of data collection via MyFarms is the measurement of rainfall. This feature allows growers to not only check the amount of rain received in a particular area, but also shows the rainfall trend for the entire growing season. To learn more about how MyFarms can help you keep track of rainfall measurements, check out this Burrus Agronomy U YouTube video below:
