Planter sensor detects changes in pH, EC and OM indicating Bertrand silt loam as new soil type.
Adjusting variable rate prescription, switchingto hybrid 2 at 33,000 seeds per acre in zone 1 to optimize yield in Bertrand silt loam.
Bottom Field: Yield currently measuringat 204 bu/ac. Grain moisture is at 17%.Soil fertility data being collected.
Script creation in process: Suggest plantingHybrid #1 at 36,000 population next seasonand split apply Nitrogen. Variable-rate fertilityscript for following year built.
Equipment nitrate sensors indicatehigher-than-expected nitrate levels remainingin zone 1 from fall application. Decreasing variablerate nitrogen prescription in zone 1 now.
Decreasing spring variable rate nitrogen application inzone 1 from 40 lbs to 20 lbs, keeping nitrogen application levels at 40 lbs in zones 2, and 60 lbs in zone 3. 20 lbs ofN were saved in zone 1 without limiting yield potential.
Soil moisture is high, temperatureis 75 degrees and humiditypredicted to be high.
Pathogen infestation risk is high. To prevent yield loss, suggest applying fungicide in next 2 days compared to next 7 days as was done last season.
Alert: West 40 Field soil sensor indicates soil moisture levels high. Nitrate levels have dropped in last 7 days.
Field is at risk for leaching, which could lead to yield loss. Data sent to nitrogen modeling tool. Monitor closely, possible mid-season fertilizer application needed.

Drone en route to provide enhanced imageryto further assess variability.
Sensors detected spoilage levelsnearing economic threshold.
Grain at risk for significant dockage at elevator.Dockage threshold could range from$.05 per bushel to rejection of entire load.
Pivot sensors recognized field moisture in Zone 1-2(silt loam soil) are at 100%, Zone 3 (sandy soil) is at 60%.
Zones 1-2 at field capacity, Pivot turned these nozzlesoff and irrigates Zone 3 to field capacity.
Gray Leaf Spot detected in Well Field,Zone 12, on susceptible hybrid.
Suggest spraying fungicide only on Zone 12 in next48 hours as this is where susceptible hybrid was planted.
