WATERTOWN, S.D. — MZB Technologies has added an additional tool to its robust precision system. Known for its patented zone-based precision technology, MZB will now offer grid mapping capabilities. This new tool will allow customers to utilize traditional grids or a hybrid of both zone and grid data together.
MZB is a cloud-based precision software package for ag retailers. This precision system helps agronomists work more closely with their growers to manage field data more efficiently and provide variable rate fertility prescriptions as well as multi-hybrid and/or variable rate seed prescriptions.
MZB also recently updated their Mapping Center to support the new upgrade. The MZB Mapping Center is a high-level GIS editing and management tool within the MZB Software Suite.
This tool allows retailers the ability to easily manage and edit field borders and integrate data collected from agronomy and precision teams. Grid soil missions of any size, old zone maps, harvest maps, field elevation data, satellite imagery and more can be integrated to develop a complete picture of what is happening across the field.
“As our agronomy footprint increases in size, so do the demands from our producers,” said Brent Wiesenburger, precsion ag manager at South Dakota Wheat Growers, 2014 Precision Farming Dealer Most Valuable Dealership. “Having the ability to offer a premium multi-layer zone management system with characteristics of a traditional grid program really expands our flexibility. We’re now in the best position to customize nutrient management programs to fit every customer’s needs.”
