E4 Scouting & Field Notes
Detailed Field and Crop Inspection
Our skilled technicians and rigorous crop scouting inspection process provides you with important, timely information about your fields and alerts you of problems before they become unmanageable. Participants in the E4 Scouting & Field Notes service can request an inspection of their fields and indicate the number of scouting trips they would like E4 to make over the course of the growing season.
Field technicians will record observations regarding the general field needs and conditions, as well as disease and weed pressure, and any mechanical issues found on a digital field map using the E4 Field Notes software. The information is then available to the grower as a Scouting Report. Through this crop scouting service, growers can make informed decisions, take action, and spend resources wisely.
In-depth Field Data Evaluation
The E4 Yield Analytics service helps you analyze your operations and identify issues and opportunities on a field-by-field basis. This allows us to dig in to find out which areas were most profitable and why — and how to apply that outcome elsewhere. As your independent crop consultant, we analyze pertinent data sets that apply to your operation and work with you to recommend cost-effective adjustments that make a difference in your fields. Our independent crop consultants help manage these changes through careful crop planning, which can optimize your ROI.
