Veris Technologies introduces Vision for Decisions, a new seeding environment decision support system to help growers improve seedbeds, planter performance, and population scripts. Vision for Decisions utilizes iScan+ soil and implement sensors embedded in tillage tools and planters along with grower input to maximize the seeding environment.
At the 2017 National Farm Machinery Show, Veris Technologies unveiled a new line of on-the-go soil sensors that easily mount to planters and tillage tools. The I Series (implement-mounted) sensors were developed to help growers and consultants precisely map and manage soil variability while performing other field operations.
Veris Technologies and the Climate Corporation, a subsidiary of Monsanto Company, recently announced a partnership that will make high resolution soil maps from Veris on-the-go soil sensors available as a key data layer for the agronomic models in the Climate Corporation’s Climate FieldView platform.
According to the USDA’s Farm and Land in Farms report published earlier this year, the average U.S. farm size has increased about 10 acres from 2012-2019, to 444. But the number of farms has decreased by more than 86,000 during that same span. There are a variety of factors contributing to the decrease and the last few years have further challenged some small and mid-size operations to remain profitable.
