FIELD REVEAL

Seeing deeper into soils to truly understand how a field yields is the best way to put the correct nutrients in the correct places of the field. FieldReveal uses electro-conductivity, elevation and yield/satellite imagery to determine the yield potential of every acre within the field.

This allows our growers to be the most efficient with every input and maximize ROI.

R7 and Field Forecasting Tool

R7 Tool- The R7 Tool by Winfield United allows Great Bend Co-op to dive deeper into your fields to understand field variability. The R7 Tool uses satellite imagery that allows you to view field maps with historical data, soil variability and other vital information to help make better decisions on your farm, whether it be seed, fertilizer or variable rate technology.

FFT- The Field Forecasting Tool by Winfield United is a crop modeling tool that uses field specific information along with Nutrisolutions to evaluate crop growth and development. This enables growers to determine optimal timing and rates for nutrient and water applications in-season

Sustain

At Great Bend Co-op, sustainability means being responsible with our inputs and protecting the land. If we can help a grower put the right product at the right rate at the right time of plant development, we can ensure we are getting the most out of every unit of input.

By encouraging the use of cover crops or no till, we are helping prevent the erosion of topsoil and the retention of soil moisture. By doing these things, we believe we are not only helping a grower get more output per unit of input, but also being the best stewards of the land.

CLIMATE FIELDVIEW

Climate FieldView helps seamlessly collect and analyze yield and as-applied data across several machine types to help track and evaluate the agronomic decision you make. Being able to compare field data layers can help our growers be sure they are making the most informed decision to that makes them the best economic return.

Farmobile

Farmobile is an innovative leader in data collection across many different makes and models. The data is standardized and viewable in real time from the Data Engine and allows for the data to be stored in one place.

The Farmobile Data Store also offers revenue opportunity for a grower and finally gives data a real value.

AQUASPY

Irrigating can be a challenge, and getting the best use of our most valuable resource is crucial. With a soil moisture probe, we can make sure we are providing our crops with the correct amount of water.

Aqua Spy moisture probes also allow us to see where our nutrients are moving within the soil and make sure they are available for plant uptake.
