SERVICES > FIELD NOTES

Multiple inspections...
Typically E4 will conduct five or six inspections of each field over the course of the growing season. If additional inspections are called for—e.g. to monitor the results of an insecticide application—we'll come more often.

Skilled technicians...
All our technicians are trained to inspect fields thoroughly—they know what to look for and when to look for it. Occasionally we'll bring in crop consultants or agronomists for special evaluations.

Free technology...
The E4 Field Notes software module is made available to all customers of crop inspection services. Additional software modules—Gateway, Weather, Map Viewer—also come free, and can be used for a variety of applications.

Field inspection is an important but often overlooked activity, and our skilled staff can alert growers to problems before they become unmanageable or damaging.

The E4 Field Notes service offers thorough field inspections over the course of the growing season. We look at general field needs (soil compaction, waterways, tiles, terraces, fences, etc.) and assess agronomic conditions (weather damage, plant population, insects, diseases, weeds, chemical damage, nutrient deficiencies, etc.) We also provide yield estimates and offer harvest schedule projections.

E4 uses its own proprietary Field Notes software module to facilitate observation-tracking and communication with customers.

How it works:

Using the E4 Field Notes software module, growers request inspection of specified fields.
Skilled E4 technicians are dispatched. They walk the fields and, when internet connectivity is available, record their observations directly into the E4 Field Notes software module. Observations may be supplemented with typed notes, audio recordings and/or digital photos.
Once information is collected, growers can themselves use the E4 Field Notes module to review field observations. For pressing problems, the grower will be contacted directly by the field inspector, either by telephone or email.
Data is saved in the E4 Data Bank software module for future reference.
