The foundation of the science is centered on Optimum Plant Canopy Temperature (OPCT). All plants have a temperature at which they perform best and which will produce maximum yields.
Smartfield has developed proprietary algorithms and patented processes which convert plant canopy temperature into Smartfield Stress Units (“SSU”). SSUs turn “Big Data” into actionable data delivered on a single daily message notifying the end user on the condition of their crop.
Through balancing all crop inputs while targeting SSU, growers are able to maximize yield potential and increase profitability. In addition, researchers can readily separate a variety of treatments and objectively accelerate new products to market.
For the last several years, Smartfield has captured continuous relevant data across multiple crops and on a broad spectrum of research and commercial production operations including:
- Replicated Trials
- Pivot Irrigation
- Drip Irrigation
- Flood Irrigation
Smartfield’s science has been proven in stringent trials to provide the impetus for expanded marketing. To date, Smartfield™ has found no competing technologies providing the breadth and depth of actionable data.
