Field scouting is a prerequisite for making any management decision about your field. It reduces uncertainty, prevents unnecessary treatments, and provides an assessment of whether your management strategies are working. Our crop scouting service is aimed at finding and controlling crop pests and injury before they can cause economic damage.
During a field visit our team is trained to observe and identify any signs of crop damage such as thinning, stunting, early dying, discoloration, damaged stems or leaves, etc. Each field scout is equipped with FieldX scouting and reporting software to record their observations about planting, chemical applications, tillage, harvest, field plans, and scouting. When a recommendation is required our field scouts issue a detailed report out lining growth stage, crop observations, field conditions, and weeds/insects. If a product application is required the recommendation includes product rates, total amounts needed, and mixing instructions for easy planning and purchasing.
