The profit map from the example in the screenshot takes into account the as-applied datasets of fertilization, seeding, two times of crop protection application, and harvesting. Other expenses can be added to the calculation, such as land preparation, miscellaneous activities as well.
Precision agriculture is a data-driven approach that seeks to increase efficiency and profitability. GeoPard, a leading provider of precision agriculture solutions, is enhancing its data analysis capabilities with the introduction of Profit Maps.
This feature provides a visual representation of profitability at the subfield level, enabling more informed decision-making and resource allocation. You’ll be able to see at a glance where your fields are making you money and where the costs of inputs and changes aren´t paying off.
Profit Maps are generated by integrating various data layers, including as-applied seeding, crop protection application, fertilizer usage, and harvesting data. This information is sourced directly from agricultural equipment and the John Deere Operations Center.
GeoPard then applies a custom equation, factoring in the cost of each input, to calculate zone-level profitability. These profit maps provide a comprehensive view of the profit spread across different field zones.
One of the key features of GeoPard’s Profit Maps is the ability to display the spread in profit across different zones of a field. This is calculated in dollars/euros/any currency and provides a clear indication of how much profit a farmer is making in each specific area.
By having this information at their fingertips, farmers can make more informed decisions about where and how to use their agricultural inputs.
For instance, they might choose to invest more in areas with higher profitability or reconsider their strategies in zones with lower returns. This granularity level in data analysis sets GeoPard’s Profit Maps apart.
Vladimir Klinkov, Managing Director of GeoPard, emphasizes the transformative potential of this tool, stating, “These maps allow farmers to make more informed decisions about resource distribution and costs on each hectare of the field and plan their business more effectively.”
The practical application of Profit Maps is already being demonstrated in real-world scenarios. Eurasia Group Kazakhstan, an official John Deere dealer, has been leveraging this feature to optimize its operations.
Evgeniy Chesnokov, Director of Agricultural Management at Eurasia Group Kazakhstan LLP, shares his experience: “With the help of GeoPard Agriculture’s Profit Map, we were able to gain a deeper understanding of the profitability of our partners’ fields.
This allowed our farmers to make more strategic decisions on the allocation of resources, which ultimately increased operational efficiency and improved bottom line indicators.”
GeoPard’s Profit Maps represent a significant advancement in precision agriculture, providing farmers with the insights they need to optimize their operations and maximize profitability. As the industry continues to evolve, tools like these will play an increasingly important role in shaping the future of farming.
