Why should I use Precision Partners over another service?
We are a small, independent, trusted, and experienced company. Small means we know you and you know us. If you have to call for support-you talk to Aaron or Paul--not some calling center. Independent means we work with all brands of products and equipment and we don't sell inputs. Trusted means your name and data are confidential with us. Experienced means we have been working in the precision ag industry since 1997.
Is my data safe with you?
Absolutely. Your information is stored on our private servers and is kept completely confidential. It is not shared with anyone else.
How do I get started with ProfitZ?
Give us a call. We can discuss whether offering our ProfitZ precision agriculture program is right for you.
Can I compare variable rate vs conventional rate application using ProfitZ?
You can run scenarios on your field before you spend one dollar to make sure you will use the right amount of product on a field. You are able to view N, P, K and S in these scenarios.
Why do it?
The conventional method of applying nutrients at a uniform rate causes overfeeding of low-yielding ground and under-feeding of higher-yielding ground. Improved nutrient management leads to improved crop quality and yield.
Can I use my yield data from a combine monitor in the process?
Yes. The ProfiZ program uses many layers of data to view your field. Combine yield data can be used as a reference layer.
Can I create custom fertilizer blends?
Yes. That is all a part of the ProfitZ.nutrients program. If different fields need fertilizer blends, you can customize your needs with our program.
Can I use elevation data?
Yes. In places where LIDAR data has been collected, LIDAR data can be used as a reference layer.
How about veris data?
Yes. Veris data can be used as well.
What about variable rate seed?
Variable rate seed is included within the ProfitZ.nutrient program. You can design a variable rate seeding or planting map for each field.
What's the advantage of variable rate seed?
Variable rate seed allows growers to save seed and money, plus push some yield. For example, let's say a field has variable soil conditions where part of the field is clay, another area is sandy loam, and another is alkali. Variable rate seed puts more seed into areas that produce the best return and less seed in the poorer land that returns less profit.
What other types of products can I variable rate?
Basically anything. If you have an idea of a product that you want to variable rate--we can do it!
How does ProfitZ.sugar work?
Our ProfitZ.sugar program uses satellite imagery to define beet top coloration. This information is used to create nitrogen credit zones. This information, along with your knowledge and plans for the field, allows you to generate variable-rate nutrient application maps for each field.
How does ProfitZ.fieldviewer work?
Data must collected from a field by either survey grade GPS equipment (RTK) or LIDAR data. This provides sub-inch data for precise definition of elevation. ProfitZ.fieldviewer allows you to view different layers related to surface drainage. You can also attach a GPS to it so you can use the program in the field.
What are some of the advantages to improved drainage?
Some of the benefits to improved drainage can include yield improvement, crop uniformity, efficient water distribution and increased land value. Plants also have better nutrient uptake and resist drought better.
