Jill Stanford will provide a brief overview of John Deere Intelligent Solutions Group and the uses of GIS in Precision Agriculture products at John Deere. Jill will provide examples of how spatial data is collected in the field with sub-inch accuracy GPS positions along with machine and agricultural sensors. The position data is used both inside the cab during field operations such as planting and spraying to reduce double planting or overlap spraying areas. It is also used in the cab for real-time feedback regarding equipment and crop performance. In the office, maps of the field operations are generated and can be used to create management zones that can be used to significantly optimize product placement by varying rates applied within a field for more precise management. Jill will also discuss some recent industry efforts to standardize data exchange in the Agriculture industry.
