Verde use case:
Enhancing field benchmarking
By Dr Matthew Smith, Chief Product Officer
on February 10, 2020
Field-to-field benchmarking can be enhanced through the application of Verde's Field Attributes. These insights can then inform management practices and improve production
Verde Field Attributes data could be used to compare fields by their properties. Obtaining this understanding is crucial to identifying the key determinants and constraints to production in any field. From here, improvements to production to be identified, such as applying fertiliser to a certain area to improve yields.
This run-through contains a simple example of benchmarking fields using the field attributes of NDVI, Chlorophyll content and Green Vegetation Cover. You'll be walked-through the process of selecting fields within a chosen radius of a specific field, which are growing the same crop. You'll then undertake a series of analyses to enable the intuitive comparison of the fields according to their Verde field attributes.
