Agrian's Unified Tool Set for Precision Management

Precision agronomy is part of crop management at field, farm and enterprise management levels. Often tools for managing data in growing enterprises have created silos, fragmenting workflows, multiple data reentries and errors. Data brought from multiple sources, in different formats has made roll-up costly and often not viable.
Agrian’s unified ag workflows and data formats allow intelligence development. From field geo-location and identification, integration of public and private data sets, observed and logged information, field imagery, samples, yield and compliance, the consolidated data can be used for management and knowledge.
Starting with a field profile, adding soil fertility, planting, product input details, equipment use, in-season imagery, scouting, pics and yield, Agrian data allows for immediate visualization and management. On-farm testing becomes rich analysis material with 60+ data elements on each crop.  Our manufacturer indemnified database and Modus Standard field information makes enterprise intelligence possible. Agrian users are able to share data with customers, applicators and crop buyers based on a data permission system that is data-owner designated.
