Yield & Soil Mapping
High Resolution Yield & Soil Mapping constructed to meet the growers needs.
The Green Atlas Cartographer is an innovative combination of hardware and software that allows flower and fruit counts to be quickly and accurately mapped over entire orchards. With high resolution AI assisted mapping, our customers know every block and every tree, to help manage the life cycle from flower to fruit.
Know the relative performance of different blocks, comparing overall yield and the evenness of the distribution. Know how well your thinning program worked and adapt for next year.
Know the variability within each block. Determine management zones to address variability and achieve consistency every year.
Zoom in and know exactly what’s going on like Google Street View™ for the orchard. Visually inspect high resolution color images anywhere.
Go beyond 2D and know the performance of the lower and upper canopy. The trees on the right are one year older and bear more fruit up top, while the lower canopy has been managed evenly. Predict the increased harvest labor with more fruit in the upper canopy. During flowering, manage the different timing of lower and upper canopy bloom.
Cartographer uses LiDAR to measure tree canopy geometry throughout the orchard. This includes tree height, canopy area/volume and canopy density. Define treatment zones or make informed spray and pruning decisions throughout the season! Top right: apple tree volume; Bottom right: wine grape vine volume.
The Cartographer has been busy working across multiple crop types including Apples, Almonds, Cherries, Kiwifruit and Wine Grapes across the spectrum of fruit lifecycle, from flowering to mature fruit, and in the case of almonds, post-harvest to map ‘mummified’ nuts left on the trees.
Digital Top Soil Mapping System
SoilOptix® – High Resolution Top Soil Mapping is inspired to bring to agriculture a new one-of-a-kind, affordable soil analysis system that sets a new standard for accuracy in precision agriculture. Offering much more than traditional soil measurement practices, SoilOptix® delivers the highest definition and most detailed field nutrient maps obtainable today. This empowers growers to make the best decisions for management and soil stewardship. SoilOptix® is your best choice, because every square foot is unique.
SoilOptix® uses a non-contact, pre-calibrated sensor, mounted on a collection vehicle approximately 2ft (60cm) above the ground, traveling up to 12 mph (20kph) in 40 ft (12m) swaths widths. The sensor is measuring natural geological properties
Traditional soil samples are taken at strategically place locations; 1 every 8 acres surveyed. These are then sent out to your local lab for analysis. These results are integrated into our final product. Once we receive the lab results, we can begin our processing.
Our highly-trained team of data processors then take, analyze, and process the information using proprietary SoilOptix® software and algorithms. Data processing is completed within a target of 48 business hours.
High-definition nutrient & texture maps are returned to you in generic SHP or CSV files. Files are VRA-ready and can be easily integrated into most data platforms; including Climate FieldView & John Deere Operations Centre.
