Producers will now be able to monitor variable rate irrigation (VRI) remotely from their computer, tablet or smartphone. MyAgCentral is now offering the second of its new end-to-end solutions for agriculture, giving growers a simple and affordable way to leverage VRI through the MyAgCentral dashboard.
DN2K [parent company of MyAgCentral] partners with Precision Cropping Technologies (PCT) as a VRI prescription provider, AgSense as a supplier of irrigation telematics solutions, and Prime Meridian as a MyAgCentral service provider, to deliver this fully integrated VRI workflow solution. MyAgCentral’s online service makes it easy for growers and irrigation providers to order VRI agronomic related services and deliver irrigation prescriptions to pivots in the field.
The VRI solution, delivered through the MyAgCentral dashboard, allows agronomic service providers to easily upload the soil electroconductivity and topographical data necessary for processing through PCT’s industry leading VRI software solution. Customized prescriptions optimizing water and power resources for specific fields and crops are delivered seamlessly back to the grower’s MyAgCentral account. Without leaving their MyAgCentral dashboard, growers and service providers can push VRI prescriptions to any AgSense telematic equipped center-pivot. PCT’s VRI prescriptions can also be ordered through MyAgCentral for many other OEM and third party centerpivot telematic systems.
“This end-to-end VRI management solution connects all the dots and brings together the people needed to support growers through the entire VRI process,” said Susan Lambert, CEO of DN2K. “Growers can now take full advantage of VRI, optimizing inputs and increasing yields whether they’re in their office or mobile.”
Partner companies in this venture say this will give farmers better access to the right prescriptions in irrigation operations.
