We have analyzed all the data elements that farmers can’t control – like sun, soil, slope and water – along with real yield data to understand the intrinsic value of land so farmers can use that information to improve performance.
To create the TrueHarvest Benchmark, FarmLink data scientists use more than 6,000,000 acres of yield data, while correlating the impact of 50 different variables related to weather, soil, sun, and topography. This volume of actionable information establishes a data set of more than 800 billion individual data elements.
That core data is being used to benchmark 6,000,000 acres of farmland in the United States, which creates the performance range for every field, zone and micro-field in each portfolio of corn, soybeans and wheat in the United States.
The result is a unique and precise understanding of the performance range at the field, zone and micro-field levels of comparable land in comparable conditions for that season.
