MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Sentera, a designer and manufacturer of remote-sensing technologies for precision farming, announced new features for the NDVI Toolbox in Sentera AgVault desktop. The new tools offer agriculture professionals improved field insights for use on and off the field.

New capabilities include zone management, a basic prescription-writing tool and dynamic orthomosaic colormapping. Agronomists, advisors, and producers can use these tools to analyze crop data and streamline prescription workflows throughout the growing season.

Augmented Capabilities

AgVault's principal updates address some of our customers' most frequently requested features. New features include:

Normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) Zone Management: Transforms a high-resolution raster field map into zones that share common NDVI values, allowing users to manage their field based on measured crop health metrics. This information can be exported directly to a shapefile for consumption in the My John Deere Operations Center or other precision agriculture applications.

Simple Prescription Tool: AgVault's prescription tool allows users to input application rates based on NDVI zones. Data exported from the prescription tool can be used by most leading in-cab systems to perform precision input applications.

Colormapping of Full Orthomosaics: Orthomosaics now have the same dynamic colormapping features as other AgVault products — perfect for easily analyzing plant health data over time, across an operation, or across a field.
